With a partner or in a small group:
1) Form a
question or argument
from your concept map

2) Find a
source of evidence
to answer or support it

3) Evaluate with the CRAAP test. Consider these
questions
:
How
timely
should the source be?
What is the most appropriate
format
? What is the
purpose
of the source?
What is the
research method
? Are there flaws or limitations?
Who is the
author(s)
? Are there biases or conflicts of interest?
Women make up
less than 15%
of contributors to Wikipedia.

This "gender gap" means "articles with particular interest to women tend to be shorter, even when controlling for variables that affect article length" (2014, para. 2-3).
