Current: -March 9, 2013 -no, it is recent and edited Relevance: -informational in a song format -related to the killing if grasslands and the habitat living in it -it is graphic so the intended readership should be for high school students and above Authority: -video is in YouTube, so anybody has access to it, and it is presentable -video has 55 subscribers (which is considered an ok amount) so it should be accurate -it was self-published with help from peers Accuracy: -has a bibliography -sources are listed -topic is related to temperate grassland Purpose: -the purpose is not stated but can be inferred from the video -has a slight bias, because the song talks about the killing of grassland and wildlife -the bias can influence the audience by pathos because of the emotions provoking the viewers

Temperate Grassland Responses to Climate Change: an Analysis using the Hurley Pasture Model

Temperate Grassland Responses to Climate Change: an Analysis using the Hurley Pasture Model | Temperate Grassland | Scoop.it
Katy Bryan's insight:
C- March 24, 1997. R- The intended audience is anyone who is wanting to learn about the Temperate Grassland Biome. There is a lot of information presented about how climate change can affect the carbon levels in the grass, causing the quality of the grass to change. When the temperature goes up, the carbon levels sink. The intended readership level is probably 10th grade and up, because it wouldn't really interest anyone younger than that. A- the authors are J. H. M. Thornley and M. G. R. Cannell. A- this article is very accurate because they actually performed the scientific activity and experiment, giving them their information. P- there is no bias because the authors are just stating facts, not opinions. The purpose of this article is to let people know how grass is affected when the temperatures rise.

This article was last updated in November 6, 2013. It talks about how animals such as prairies has to adapt to the harsh conditions of the grasslands. Grasslands are found where there is not enough regular rainfall to support the growth of a forest, but not so little as to form a desert and so the animals are struggling to adapt. This article was found in national geographics which is considered a creditable source. The purpose of this article was to inform people about the new changes of the grasslands.

Katy Bryan's insight:
C- page last updated in 2012. R- the intended audience is anyone who wants to learn about the temperate grassland biome. It gives a numerous amount of facts about this biome and tells a lot about the climate, rainfall, soil, and limiting factors. A- the author is the website it was published on. This website seems very credible, but it does not list a specific author. A-this article is very accurate in that it gives a lot of the information we are looking for about temperate grasslands. There is not a bibliography included in it. P- the purpose is to teach people about the temperate grassland. It simply provides facts about it, and is not biased in any way. It doesn't give any opinions on the grasslands.
