This activity helps students evaluate their own authority on a particular subject so that they can begin to understand how authority is created and effectively evaluate the authority of other sources they encounter. Additional evaluation criteria is also introduced.
This activity asks students to evaluate multiple sources in order to become more critical consumers of information.
*Note: This is a flipped classroom activity. You will need to provide students with four source types that students will evaluate as homework.
Students will create evaluation criteria that they can use to determine the quality of a source.
