Students will find a source related to their disciplines or a specific topic in their disciplines. They will then evaluate the source critically by looking at the types of information that it uses, depth of its information, format it is in, audience it is directed towards, reliability of information, and accuracy of information. Students will then use Google Scholar to look at whether their articles have been used and by whom.
Like the multiple source comparison, students should consider whether they would use this source if they were writing a paper, what types of sources they themselves create, and whether those sources would be credible.
For this assignment, students can produce a standard written report, or, alternatively, they can do a video, an article review, a blog post, or a radio talk show segment on the work.
