INFORMATION LITERACY is one of MCC's four general education goals. Part of Information Literacy is the ability to evaluate information for QUALITY and to select sources that are SUITABLE for the information need! We're here today to help you develop these skills in ENG 151. Following this session (and with some practice), you should be able to:
1. Evaluate the quality of a resource using multiple criteria including authority, objectivity, and accuracy.
2. Judge the suitability of a resource to the information need by assessing such characteristics as its purpose, scope, intended audience, point of view, timeliness, publication format, and relevance.
3. Select appropriate search tools to identify and locate information sources for argumentative papers.
4. Recognize that information issues are becoming increasing important in our society.
5. Recognize different information formats , such as journal articles, newspaper articles, blogs, etc.
