Inquiry-Based Learning • Gathering Sources
Activity: Evaluating Sources

As with many aspects of the inquiry process, evaluating sources is a skill that students need to practice throughout their education and librarians are continuously refining the most effective ways to teach it. Read the resources to learn methods that your peers have found productive and then use the Reflect & Practice activity to consider adaptations you might make to your own practice.



After reading about the experiences of Krueger, Sannwald, Johns, and Abilock, use the guiding questions in the template to reflect on your methodologies of teaching source evaluation.
