Is this source credible? What are your criteria to determine this?
How might you use this type of source in your research?
Have someone in your group write down the answers to these questions on the walls with.a dry erase marker. You will have 5-10 minutes to answer the questions and then we will share as a group. Be prepared to share your answers with the rest of the class.
