II. Evaluating Source Types. After identifying each source type, click on the links to open and scan each source (you do not need to read them all in full). All of these sources cover the topic of caffeine, but in different ways. Think about what characteristics make each source type distinct. Below are some aspects to consider:
Does the source cover the topic broadly or does it narrow the focus to 1 or 2 specific aspects?
Does the source go into detail about the topic, or does it only give an overview?
Does the source include original findings by the author/s, or does it report on the findings of others? Or both?
Does the source report new information or information that has already been established?
Is this written for the general public? For students? For professionals in a given field? Someone else?
· Language & Tone
Formal or informal? Neutral? Impersonal or personal? Plain & simple language or jargon?
Was this written to educate? To entertain? To make a political argument? As cultural commentary? Something else?
In the space below, describe what distinguishes each of the source types listed. Share your thoughts on the discussion board, and try to reach a consensus with your classmates.
