WSH CTA 201: Mass Communication

Small Group Activity

Is your source trustworthy?  How do you know? 

Use the CRAAP method and vertical, lateral, and upstream strategies to evaluate your group's article(s).

Questions to consider:

  • What are the things that lend credibility to the article?
  • What are the limitations?
  • What perspectives/expertise might be missing?
  • Do other sources corroborate?

Be prepared to explain your evaluation process (in detail) to the class.
