To critically evaluate information and its sources.



When examining a print periodical or journal, or a website, you need to ask yourself some questions when trying to figure out its ideological orientation.  You will want to recognize editorial points of view for many reasons: e.g., to find competing perspectives on particular policy proposals.

Use the tabs in this guide to answer these questions.  (These items are based on documents used in a course titled AMC500:  Research Foundations taught by Robert L. Houbeck, Jr. at the University of Michigan-Flint and the CARS Checklist by Robert Harris of Virtual Salt.)
