Evaluating Sources

REMINDER:  YOU MUST EVALUATE INTERNET SOURCES (the sites above and others):

                Who is the author?  Who is the audience?

                What is the content?  Is there documentation—a list of sources to support statements made?

                When was it written? (Is it current?)

                What is the purpose of the site?  (Is there a point of view?  Is it objective information?  Is it to sell?

 to persuade?)
