Lara Schwartz is the director of the Project for Civil Discourse at American University where she’s also a professor in law and government. She’s also the coauthor of How to College: What to Know Before You Go (And When You’re There). We talk about the problem of false equivalence (also termed false balance, both-sidesism, and both-siderism) in the classroom, and how college professors can address this problem.
