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.

Mayan Calendar

Reliving the Sixties

Eggs & Cholesterol

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hydraulic Fracturing

Warning:
The Mayan Calendar assignment may be challenging since the world didn't end on December 21, 2012.

Warning:
The Sixties assignment may be challenging since anyone over 60 can claim to be an expert.

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.

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