For the maybe sources it helps to first determine
For the “Maybe” Sources, it helps to first determine: sources?

  • Purpose– Are they trying to persuade you of something? Are they trying to write to simply get out their emotions? Are they writing to simply inform you? Are they writing to make money?

    • If this doesn’t help, think about if the writer has anything to personally gain by writing.

  • Bias- Do they only write one side of the issue with no understanding to the other? If not, then they are biased and not credible because they favor one side over the other.

    Would the two articles we read today be considered “credible” sources? Talk with a partner.


  • HW: sources?
