Title: Awareness of false information: urban legends
Author: Fernsler, Erin
Abstract: It is typical for people to believe urban legends. An urban legend is any modern, fictional story, told as truth that reaches a wide audience by being passed from person to person. The study of urban legends helps us be more alert to false information in our everyday lives. There are very limited resources about urban legends and the impact of the stories on deaf culture. There are very few stories that are common in the deaf community. There are plenty of books about urban legends, but none includes deaf people. This is a problem for the deaf students because they may not have enough exposure to urban legends and may not be able to detect which are true or false. This research project will provide a basis for those who want to develop a curriculum or workshops about awareness of false information for D/deaf students.
