Page history last edited by Brad F 7 years, 7 months ago



Talking about credible sources. (p708 - 710)


  • evaluate sources to see if they are:   
    • authoritative   (author credentials, reputable source)
    • accurate  (are facts/evidence verifiable?, if source accounts for alternative viewpoints, are they fairly represented?)
    • objective  (is it presenting facts, are sources for evidence given, is the source academic, if not, what is its purpose?)
    • current / relevant   (is info updated or reflecting recent discussions/changes)
    • comprehensive   (does it demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the field)
