Source Evaluation

A module for understanding how to evaluate sources, designed specifically for Logic & Critical Thinking (PHIL 2020)
Source Evaluation

Why Should I Care?

I don't need sources, I just need an argument!

Well, actually, you need both. 

For your Logic and Critical Thinking class, you have to complete an argument journal, which requires you to find arguments.

To find arguments, you have to pull out your trusty library research skills and find sources that contain arguments. And just like that argumentative paper in your English class, you need to find good sources.

How do you know if it's a good source? You ask questions about it, and look at it with a critical eye. Is it a website? Is it a news article? Is it by an "authority" on the topic? Are they trying to sell you something? Is the information presented as fact or opinion? All these are questions that, when answered, will help you evaluate the statements made within your sources.
