    • Does the source use a lot of partisan rhetoric?
    • Does the source make unwarranted assumptions?
    • Is the article fair and open-minded?
    • Is the tone of the article positive to those with differing perspectives?
    • How might those with a different perspective react to the reasoning presented by this source?

  • Complete Steps 1–4 for the third source.
  • Complete Steps 1–4 for the fourth source.
  • Explain what you noticed in the different types of sources, addressing questions such as
    • Did you find them to use more reasoning or rhetoric?
    • Was there a noticeable bias in the language and assumptions used in the articles?
    • Which types of sources (scholarly, nonpartisan credible, or highly partisan) did you find most helpful and informative on the topic (and why)?
    • Will this exercise likely affect how you consider sources in the future?
