Understanding Credibility: Credibility

Peer Review in 3 Minutes

Evaluating Sources

Below are links to two sources. I will assign each of you to look at one source. Quickly skim it to get the general idea of what it's about.

After skimming the source, work with a partner to answer the following questions:

  1. Is this a credible source? Why or why not?
  2. Would you use this source if you were writing a paper on a related topic? Why or why not?
