ENGWR 300 - Professor Prieto (Spring 2020): Evaluating Sources



Let's practice evaluating sourcest. Google microaggressions and take a look at a few hits. Ask yourself some of the CRAAP questions. Can you find one that looks good? Or that looks crappy?

Google microaggressions

CRAAP Test Plus Questions

In addition to the questions on the CRAAP test, ask yourself these questions when evaluating a source:

  • Who benefits from the story being told?
  • Whose voices, concerns, experiences are included? Whose are excluded?
  • What assumptions are made? What unexamined beliefs does the author appear to have? What is the author unconscious of/unaware of?
  • What power dynamics are in play?
