Resource Evaluation Assignment:           50 Points

 

Locate ten sources related to your research topic (types of resources stated below).  Write a short summary of 5 sources and evaluate each source for validity and credibility by applying the seven questions below (also located in the Discussion Board Posting for Week 13).

 

Be sure to explain/develop your responses.

 

  • Does the writer support the claim(s) with evidence?
  • Does the writer reveal how and where evidence was obtained?
  • Does the writer recognize that other points of view may be legitimate?
  • Does the writer use sarcasm or make personal attacks on opponents?If he/she does, then you are reading an editorial (which is not a valid resource)
  • Does the writer reach a conclusion that is in proportion to the amount of evidence provided?
  • Does the writer have credentials that invest the work with authority?
  • Does the writer seem biased?

 

Resources must be objective materials and be from MORE than one medium [i.e.: database articles (journals, periodicals), hard copies (i.e.: books), valid Internet websites (Op-Ed (Editorial/Opinion) articles are NOT acceptable), documentaries, news programming]

 

Note:

  • Any type of resource contained on an Ayn Rand/Atlas Shrugged/objectivist website (Aynrand.com, the Objectivist Standard, etc.) or obtained from an Op-Ed [off limits] article referencing the book or author’s philosophy is not a valid resource and may not be used.

 

  • The assignment should be submitted as an Annotated Bibliography with the source citation at the top of each evaluative passage. Each annotation should be approximately ½ page in length in addition to the MLA source citation.

 

  • There should be no use of “I” or reference to oneself in this assignment (Follow the instructions on The Don’ts of Writing)

 

Reminder:

 

Resources should be in alphabetical order as they would appear on the Works Cited page and follow MLA 8 formatting rules for all citations and annotations
