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 four 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

Eggs & Cholesterol

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hydraulic Fracturing

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

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

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

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. Now that I have been retired as a librarian for five years, I am strongly considering removing the T is for Thinking site and these assignments. If you have anything to say about that, please let me know. Absence of any feedback will be an excellent indication that this site is no longer serving its intended purpose.
