- The Assignment
- Variations on a Theme
- Supporting Content
This activity is infinitely flexible. You could:
- Change the reading to an article or website from your discipline.
- Change the questions to evaluate the scientific method or the research process.
(Was the sample size adequate? Do you agree with the researchers conclusions?)
- After the students have evaluated the content, ask them how the information
should be used. (For example, an article that might not be good for a research paper
may be useful for general information.)
