Overview: For this week's Writing Exercise, I am asking you to consider how different sources provide different kinds of information that is useful for different reasons. You will run a search on your topic in different sources and report back on the differences you see.
For a discussion of how I did the assignment and some discussion about what I'm asking you to do (and why) watch the video on the syllabus before trying to do this assignment.
BEFORE YOU POST:
Once you've run your searches and located your sources, skim them. I'm not asking you to read them super carefully. You don't need to do that for this assignment.
WHAT TO POST: In about 250 words, write about what your different sources have in common in terms of the kinds of information they give you about your topic. In what ways does the information seem different across these different sources? Why would you choose wikipedia over JSTOR? Is there a time when that might be the best choice? Are there other times where the google search would not work? Try to be as specific as possible.
