Evaluating Information Activity

Below are links to four different sources. In groups you will look at one of these sources to determine:

  1. What type of source are you looking at? 
  2. Is this source credible? What are your criteria to determine this?
  3. How might you use it in your research? 

Please have someone in your group write down the responses to these questions. You will have 5-10 minutes to answer the questions and then we will share as a group.
