. Sources


EACH source. All of these take the same five “steps” as they assess the sources you have chosen.
The first step is to offer a brief summary of the source. What are they key points of the source?
Then students will discuss the “credibility” of the source Folks will most often discuss the author, but they might also talk about the organization that released the information or the publication that presented it. What makes this source reliable?
Next, students should explicitly address the “quality” of the source.
Does the author achieve what they set out to do? If the source works well, why does it work well? What is particularly effective about it? This can include comments about the quality of research, writing, thinking, etc displayed by the author.
Finally, students must address the relevance of the source
How will the source be used in your essay? It is important to specifically mention your paper. Many students demonstrate relevance, for example, by discussing which section/main supporting point in the paper will be helped by the source.
At the end of each entry, students should place an in-text citation: (Smith, 2012), for example. Note, though, that this does not mean you should quote from the source directly.
