Evaluating internet and scholarly sources across the disciplines: Two case studies. College Teaching, 55(4), 151-156. doi:10.1111/j.1747-7379.2007.00759.x This article discusses the problem of unintentional online plagiarism and many students inability to Annotation:evaluate, critique, synthesize, and credit online sources properly. Two case studies from different disciplines, which were designed to foster critical evaluation of the Internet and scholarly sources, are discussed in detail. I found this article useful because much of the content of these case studies can be easily adapted to fit assignments in different academic disciplines. One information literacy assignment in one quarter at college is not enough. If students are expected to use the Internet in a responsible way, educators must provide guidelines and relevant experience that allow students to apply those guidelines in practical ways.November 17, 2011Copyright Rasmussen, Inc. 2011.

Summary Two to four sentences long Ask yourself: What are the main arguments? What is the point of this book/article? What topics are covered? If someone asks you what the resource was about, how would you describe it?November 17, 2011 Copyright Rasmussen, Inc. 2011. Proprietary and Confidential. 7 8. Summary ExampleKing, J. (2010, July 9). Summer shouldnt be a lazy time for kids. USA Today, sec. 9a. Retrieved from http://www.usatoday.com Obesity rates in children have tripled in the last 30 years and Michelle Obama is making it her goal to educate children and adults on how to lead healthier lifestyles. Joyce King believes that while Michelle Obamas initiative is great, it is going to take a lot of effort from parents to help their children become more active and learn healthier eating habits. King has worked in broadcasting for more than 20 years and has won many awards, so this article is very credible. King also provides numerous statistics to back up her claims, including the percentage of minority children who are overweight and the low percentage of children who will be doing physical activities during the summer. I found this article to be much more insightful than the other two articles I looked at. I knew that obesity rates in children were high, but I had no idea how staggering the statistics were and my eyes have been opened to just how serious childhood obesity has become.November 17, 2011 Copyright Rasmussen, Inc. 2011.
