Describe your strategy for searching for evidence.
Who wrote the selected source?
Who is the intended audience?
How current is the evidence?
Are there bibliographies, citations, references, or footnotes?
Do the sources cited appear credible? Why or why not?
What creative action can you take in sharing evidence with others at your workplace?
