In the fashion of Myth Busters, students look at significant events, institutions and groups throughout history and some well and lesser known conspiracy theories that have evolved surrounding them.  Some examples might include: The assassination of President John F. Kennedy; The moon landing, was it actually filmed on a Hollywood set?; Pearl Harbor --did the US government let it happen?; 9/11; the missing flight Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and others that provoke student interest.  The class will look at established facts regarding the event and then look analyze the event in comparison with conspiracy theories.   The goals of the class are to look at history from different perspectives, learn to question sources, figure out what constitutes a reliable source(s), determine the merit of the conspiracy theory and to have fun fine tuning our analytical skills.
