Never be afraid to sit awhile and think. -- Lorraine Hansberry

T is for Thinking: the ICYouSee Guide To Critical Thinking

The pop quiz was pretty easy,
so here's an assignment that is a little tougher.


Choose one of the five categories to examine some sites related to the same topic to get a sense of the challenge of finding reliable sources of information on the Web.

Causes of Poverty

Science in Trouble

Eggs & Cholesterol

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hydraulic Fracturing

Warning:
The Poverty assignment may be challenging since problem of poverty has been unsolved for millennia.

Warning:
The Science assignment may be challenging since science has been under attack since there has been science.

Warning:
The Cholesterol assignment may be challenging since
"health expert" is not a very precise term.

Warning:
The MLK assignment may be challenging since Dr. King was such a controversial figure.

Warning:
The Fracking assignment may be challenging since there seem to be more flashpoints than common ground in  this debate.

Unless otherwise instructed, please use this evaluation checklist to complete this assignment.

Note to Instructors: You are welcome to use or adapt this assignment.
I only request that you let me know that you are doing it.

The Mayan Calendar and Sixties assignments have been replaced, but will be around for awhile.
