Lesson 8 Evaluating Facts

You learned how to differentiate between accurate, objective information, and that which is false and/or biased. In order to trust the source of any information, you need to check out the author's credentials, documentation of sources, quality of sources (are they balanced and reputable?), and the opinion of others about the source.

Find out who wrote the page, judge the accuracy and sources of the content, and check the date of the site as well as its links.

Do not believe everything you read on the Internet! Use critical thinking skills to evaluate websites and determine whether they are legitimate, or bogus.
