* In American elementary schools children are taught a fairly safe for work version of history. For example: the pilgrims and Native America got along. Then in middle or high school they slowly begin teaching them that no, they did not, and that history was full of blood shed.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11962141/1/Miraculous-Tales-of-Honeybee-and-Red-Fox Miraculous: Tales of Honeybee and Red Fox]]'', uses this trope as the EstablishingCharacterMoment of Felicite, a very self-deprecating person. The fic opens by describing the HiddenDepths of Emma Agreste, BrokenAce and Paris' golden girl. Then the narrator explains that she is Felicite, Emma's best friend, and that this story is actually about both of them.

** Chemistry and Physics are often taught that way as well. In the first year you learn a simple concept that works for some applications without actually being correct (e.g. atoms as little round balls). The next year (or unit of lectures) begins with: "Well what we previously taught you is not actually how this works. We will now explain how it actually works" (e.g. introducing the concept of electrons), the next step is pointing out how the real world is not that model either. Rinse, repeat. Justified insofar as many things can satisfactorily be explained by a "wrong" theory - Newtonian physics works just fine for human sized objects moving at highway speeds; it doesn't for atoms at near light speed. And some of the "wrong" theories are actually the basis for understanding the more advanced ones which are closer to reality.
