Critique of SoS-A Cautionary Video about America's Stuff.pdf - Google Drive

Reading critiques of resources we use in class is one way to assess the validity of our classroom resource. Here is one POV and critique  of the Story of Stuff video.

Assess the quality of the source as you read:
What type of source is this?
Is it reliable? What makes is more or less reliable?
Overall how would describe the quality of this source?

Iran's news agency portrays satirical Onion story as its own

Iran's news agency portrays satirical Onion story as its own | Walkerteach Geo | Scoop.it
Add Iran's news agency to the long list of those hoodwinked by the satire of The Onion.

 

This just kills me.  It is another reminder to ALWAYS CHECK THE VALIDITY OF YOUR SOURCES, especially when they are coming from halfway across the globe.

This has got to be the funniest thing I've seen all week. Kind of reminds me of an epic fail I heard of a while ago (BBC, you're supposed to be looking for the United Nations Security Council, not the United Nations Space Command from the Halo games! /facepalm).

Common Assessment #1 Timeline: Rubric.pdf - Google Drive

Luke Walker's insight:

Here's the rubric to our 1st Common Assessment.

Don't forget this timeline will cover the lifespan of a product as it travels through the materials economy.

Pay attention to the Variety of Sources category. Be sure to apply what you learned about the type, form, and quality of sources from class discussion. Your source selection included in your timeline will be assessed by this category.

Proper MLA citation format is required as well.
