CNX 250: The Story of You

Evaluating Information Activity

Below are links to four different sources. In groups you will look at one of these sources to determine:

  1. What type of source are you looking at? 
  2. Is this source credible? What are your criteria to determine this?
  3. How might you use this type of source in your research? 

Please have someone in your group write down the responses to these questions. You will have 5-10 minutes to answer the questions and then we will share as a group. 

(autoethnography)

Autoethnography is an approach to research and writing that seeks to describe and systematically analyze (graphy) personal experience (auto) in order to understand cultural experience (ethno).
