Your instructor may ask you to complete one or more of the following exercises.
- Log in to Facebook or Twitter and try to find a political or health-related claim. Evaluate this claim according to the CRAAP test. Write a paragraph about your findings.
- If you’re taking more than one class, see if you can blend what you’re studying this week in two different classes into one thesis by using the “divide and conquer” method. For example, if you’re studying psychographic targeting in your marketing class and corporate social responsibility in your public relations class, you might write a research question that asks “Is all psychographic targeting ethical?”
- Write a paragraph connecting Brenda Knights’ narrative to the rest of the chapter or to your own experience.
