ENG 130 - English Comp (DiDomenico): Stop


Your paper requires you to incorporate three (3) legitimate outside sources (expert opinion, facts, statistics) into this essay to support your thesis statement.

This guide and today's library session will give you a foundation for evaluating the trustworthiness of a source.


First, when you first hit a page or post and start to read it -- STOP. Ask yourself whether you know the website or source of the information, and what the reputation of both the claim and the website is. If you don't have that information, use the other moves to get a sense of what you're looking at. Don't read it or share media until you know what it is.
