  2. Who wrote your source? Who published it? Why do we care?
  3. What do you know about how your source was created? Does that matter?
  4. is your source a credible/trustworthy source of information? What questions do you ask yourselves to help decide this?
  5. Is your article appropriate to use as a source in your paper assignment? Why or why not?
  6. How could this source be useful to if you were researching this topic?
