GEN103: Information Literacy

Scholarly peer-reviewed articles are deemed credible because they are reviewed by experts in the field before they are published. However, it is important to evaluate the quality of information in these sources to ensure they meet your information needs.

This discussion requires you to evaluate the scholarly source you selected in the Week 2 Exploring Scholarly and Popular Sources assignment. You will use this source to support the Week 5 Wikipedia Stub Article Expansion final project. You also have the opportunity to select and apply reading strategies from the Student Support Center (SSC).







  • Explain what makes your scholarly source an authority for your Wikipedia stub article subtopics.
  • Explain how the information from the article is relevant to your subtopics. Include specific information from the article that would demonstrate relevance.
  • Discuss the overall strength of the article. Is it appropriate for your subtopics based on your evaluation? If your article is not appropriate, explain what your next step will be.
    • Provide an APA Style-formatted reference for your scholarly source at the end of your post.
  • Describe how using the selected reading strategy impacted your reading of your article, and what adjustments you might make to increase your efficiency in the future.

Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words and is due on Day 3 (Thursday).

Respond to Peers

Review your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers by Day 7. Each peer response should be a minimum of 50 words.

In your peer responses, consider sharing

  • Feedback or helpful tips about your peers' evaluation of the scholarly source.
  • Additional adjustments your peers could make to increase the effectiveness of the reading strategy they chose.

An important part of your learning involves the exchange of ideas and feedback with your peers and instructor. It is also tied to the participation and critical thinking components of your earned discussion grade. In your responses, share ideas, explore different perspectives, and think critically about your classmates’ posts.
