Evaluate Information

Critical Thinking

Research is about curiosity and critical thinking! The more inquisitive you are about the information you find and sources you use, the more thorough your evaluation skills will become.

Lateral Reading is a key fact checking skill. It requires leaving the source in question to investigate the source elsewhere. This help with questions about authority, accuracy, and bias.
