In class, on Monday, we discussed “Web Credibility.” We talked about what makes us trust a source, and what are some red flags that tell us a source might not be reliable.
Today, I want you (and a partner if you choose) to put your evaluation skills into practice.
I ask that you:
- Choose a topic (It can be related to your group project, your personal blog, or anything you’re really interested in)
- Find FIVE Websites and use the checklist I showed you in class to evaluate whether or not they’re good sources.
After you’ve calculated its credibility number
- Open a NEW WORD DOCUMENT
For Each Site Include:
- The Website name and Address
- The Credibility Number
Write a description of each site’s:
- and at least FOUR signs that indicates its credibility–or lack thereof.
When you have finished this put your name(s) on the doc. print it, and turn it in.
