This is an almanac/fact-checking assignment that I've given students for years. This one was updated in early 2010. Students organize into teams of two and are given a choice: Use a print almanac or the Web to fact-check the entries on this assignment. The first team to finish and have all of them right wins two iTunes cards. It's been interesting to see over the years how students assume that if they use the Web, they'll be accurate and finish early. They often learn that is not the case. I use it in editing classes, but it's worked will in some advanced reporting courses, too. It's usually given as an undergraduate assignment, but it works well with grad students, too.
