This information literacy exercise is designed to elaborate on the concept of democratic consolidation and deconsolidation. It uses a set of Washington Post articles from 2016-2017 to start discussion about the state of democracy in Poland. It then requires students to seek out new information from a variety of sources to determine what they think has happened in the years since these were written, and to assess the current state of democracy on their own. Students then compare what they found based on the kind of source they were assigned.
