The Realiability of Information

Hi Luke!

I was nice to meet with you on-line on Tuesday. We began a historical writing project on ancient weaponry.

This week we began our research and asked three questions about whether or not the information we found on-line was good enough for our purposes. We asked:

1. Does it seems to be written by an expert? Ca you look up the organization or person who wrote it?

2. Is it about our topic, especially the kind of information about the topic we want?

3. Is it written in language we can understand easily?

This week I’d like you to assess another website. This one is about the use of clouds of dust

in ancient warfare:

Please read this article and answer the above questions about it before we meet next week. We’ll use the information in our writing next Tuesday.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Have fun!

Ms.K

  1. I think that itwas written by a expert, because there is a lot of fancy words and vocab in there. I think it relates to our topic, although it sometimes does get off track. I cannot reeally understand the language there because it is very complex.

  2. It was probably written by an expert, because there is a lot of fancy words in the text that i can see that the author chose carefully. I think it relates to the topic, although it sometimes gets off track. I cannot really understand the full meaning of this because it is very complex.

    • Hi Luke,

      I think you missed the new assignment. I gave you a review of ERB hints. You can find it here:

      When you check your homework, be sure to refresh the page so that you don’t miss the new assignment. I’ll show you how to do it next week. In the meantime, please complete your real assignment for this week. : )
