Our modern world allows us to have many valuable sources of information available at the click of a mouse. While this vast source of information can lead us to be more informed citizens and researchers, it also means we need to be more critical of what we are reading and viewing. For every credible source, there are just as many sources that are trying to sell us something, are biased or are trying to misrepresent the truth. Because of this, we need to evaluate any source before we use it to support our research or before we pass it on to share.
The resources on this page, will help you become more critical readers and viewers of the information you interact with on a daily basis.
