Speech - COMM101 - Kinebrew-Bosa

How do you evaluate sources?

How do you know a source is appropriate for a speech at the college level? Using skills you already have, think about the following questions:

  1. How can you tell if an information source is AUTHORITATIVE?
  2. How do you know that the information on a website is ACCURATE?
  3. Where can you find out the PURPOSE of a website?
  4. How do you determine if an information source is RELEVANT to your needs?
  5. What is a good website YOU have used for research? (not necessarily for this assignment) (Also, not Google!)
