Strategies for Gathering Information

Fill in the following information for each of your sources:

• List the APA reference citation for the source. • Determine the credibility of the source. Consider the following criteria:

o What is the purpose and affiliation of the organization or author related to the article? o What are the author’s credentials? o Is the information current? When was the information last updated? o Does the information cross-reference with other sources? o Does the source contain bias without evidence to support the claim?

• Explain in at least two to four sentences what information you can gather from this source.
