I need help with my ANT101 Week 2 assignment 1.
The intention of this assignment is to help you understand what sources are typically considered appropriate to use for academic research papers. This assignment will also help you develop the skills needed to evaluate sources for use in academic research. You will likely come across many different types of sources during the course of your research for your Final Research Paper, including various websites, e-books, scholarly articles, news stories, magazine articles, and so forth. Not all sources you come across are suitable to use in college-level research papers. How do you know what sources are acceptable?
First, watch the ANT101 Evaluating Sources tutorial. This tutorial covers concepts such as
- How to evaluate sources to determine appropriateness for inclusion in an academic research paper using the CRAAP (currency, reliability, authority, accuracy, purpose) method.
- The different types of sources there are, the scope of information they usually cover, and their uses.
- Efficient ways to read scholarly sources.
