The Language of Inquiry: Past Events vs. Accounts of Past Events

Big Idea- There is a difference between 'past events' and 'accounts of past events'.

Students have a tendency to think that when multiple people express different views of the same events that some people are automatically lying. Conflicting and varied accounts (narrative/stories), they reason, can be placed into two broad categories: accounts which are conveying the truth and accounts which are lying. This view is simplistic and needs to be explored.
