Civil Rights Movement Research Prezi
Transcript of Civil Rights Movement Research Prezi
Civil Rights Movement Research Where to begin? Questions? With so much information out there, how do you find a website that contains information that is accurate and useful? Try the acronym CRAAP: currency, relevance, authority, accuracy and purpose. We will search two different websites and try to determine which one is reliable. http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/conlaw/sepbutequal.htm Credible Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_segregation Not-so Credible Resource The topic of the Civil Rights Movement is too broad. Try to narrow down what you are interested in searching for. Maybe what you are really interested in is a reason why the Civil Rights Movement began. Understanding racial segregation is a good first step to understand why the CRM started.
Let's do a google search for racial segregation. The topic of Civil Rights Movement Remember to look for a website's author, copyright, bias, purpose and date. After looking over the source, here are some reasons why I decided it is credible:
1. The domain name is a .edu which indicates a school affiliation.
2. The author's name is well states and contact information is given as well as credentials (professor).
3. It fits the acronym CRAAP.
Reasons it is not-so credible:
1. Information on Wikipedia can be changed and updated by a variety of people-not necessarily experts or reliable people.
2. Although its intent is to inform, it has a disclaimer that makes no guarantee of its validity. Now, try to find your own examples of a reliable and unreliable website.
