Horticulture Research Guide: Practice


  1. Read the article How to get rid of nightshade
  2. Use the SIFT Method to evaluate the source.
  3. We'll talk about what you found as a class.

As you read through the article and evaluate it, ask yourself:

  • What did you find out about the source? What kind of source is it? Your instructor has indicated that you can't use as a reference. Why do you think that is?
  • Can you find a better source for information on the poisonous plant Nightshade?
  • What other keywords did you notice that might be helpful in finding better information? Keep a list of those words.
