Challenging the Evidence Paperphotographer-100356658

Goal: Have students use scholarly sources and to develop their analytical powers and their powers of discernment after attending the Information Literacy session.
For this requirement, make use of the Information Literacy session in the library.

Find two different articles with different views or positions the same topic using scholarly databases (like Academic Search Premiere), scholarly websites, or a chapter from a book, and have them compare and contrast the evidence presented. Be sure to analyze two different sources that present information on the same topic (a scholarly journal and a website, for instance). You should summarize the contentions made (through contrast and comparison), determine the author’s credentials, date of information, sources used, etc.
