Ashford 3: – Week 2 – Assignment 2
Critiquing Internet Sources
Today, the Internet provides an unprecedented amount of information by way of blogs, videos, and podcasts. Conduct a critique of one blog, one video, and one podcast, which provide information that addresses the topic of your Final Research Paper. Assess the authors’ use of bias, validity, and applicability of information. Examine the influence of web-based information on global citizenship and multicultural understanding. Then, compile a list of three factors you believe should be considered when evaluating Internet sources for use in researching information.
The paper must be three to four pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. In addition to the three multimedia sources you are analyzing, support your points with at least two scholarly sources. One of the scholarly sources must be from the Ashford Online Library. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the reference page. For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
Here is what I decided to do my final research paper on.
The three topics that I decided to do my research on Physical Abuse, Obesity, and Social Media. I choose these three topics because I can narrow my research down to our children. In all three of the topics I can find plenty of research that deals with children. Focusing on children specifically will enable me to narrow my research topic down to a minimal. Those three topics help me focus on what matters the most and that’s our children. We are losing our children’s everyday to physical abuse as well as obesity and the social media. Those are good topics to outline for my research paper. Below are two scholarly sources that may prove valuable for my research paper.
