Activity 2 - Article Search

Find one scholarly article and one newspaper article from a database or online source. Then answer the following questions about each resource:

  • How did you find this resource (what database, search engine, catalog, etc., and what keywords did you use)?

  • How would you evaluate this resource/how do you know it’s reliable? (You can use the CRAAP test.)

  • How will this resource help you write your research paper (or how do you know it's relevant to your research project)?

You will not be expected to finish this assignment during this session. But please post a link to one resource you've found in this Google Doc. Be ready to answer how you found the resource and why you chose it since we will discuss some of your resources in class.
