Fact Checking

What questions do we ask ourselves about information, before we decide to use it in our own work, or share it with others?  What criteria or standards will you use to decide if an article, book, website or other information source is trustworthy, credible & relevant to your work?  There are several approaches to evaluating sources.

 

Please watch the videos in this section & read through the criteria/questions listed below.
