Instructional Objectives for this activity:

Explain how to evaluate the different types of sources
Use summary, analysis, and synthesis to incorporate research effectively into your writing
In this assignment, you will consider how to access and evaluate different types of sources (refer to page 435 in your textbook). Some access and evaluation techniques may be used on several sources, while others may apply to a particular source type.
Begin by listing three types of sources. For each source type, complete the following:
•Give an example of the source type (provide title and/or URL address if a web site).
•Write a three-sentence summary of each source selection (what information does each contain?)
•Describe what criteria you will use to evaluate this source.
•In a concluding paragraph for each source selection, discuss if you found the site to be credible, why it was or was not credible, and how you would incorporate it into your writing.
Assignment should be one to two pages in length.
