Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
For this assignment, you’ll do three things.
FIRST, investigate each of the resources below. Then, use the CRAAP TestLinks (file attached) to an external site. to evaluate the validity of each source for academic research.
“Outbreak of Lung Injury Associated with the Use of e-Cigarette, or Vaping, Products” (Links to an external site.) https://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/basic_information/e-cigarettes/severe-lung-disease.html
“How Bad is Vaping for You? Here’s What You Need to Know”(Links to an external site.) https://www.drozshow.com/article/how-bad-vaping-you-heres-what-you-need-know
“Vaping vs Smoking – Is vaping bad for you?” (Links to an external site.) https://vaping360.com/learn/vaping-vs-smoking-is-vaping-bad-for-you/
In a Word document, write an APA citation for each of the three articles. Then, beneath each citation, write a brief paragraph that answers the following questions:
Write an APA citation for the webpage you investigated at the top of the page.
What did the site score on the CRAAP test?
Would you use it for your research?
Why or why not?
What was problematic about it (or, on the other hand, what made you think this would be a good site)?
To be clear, you’ll have three citations, each with an accompanying paragraph, for a total of three citations and three paragraphs.
Your entire document should be formatted in 12-point, Times New Roman font with 1″ margins and double-spaced lines. Each paragraph should be at least 100 words in length (and this will be a combination of all of the answers per source). Your input should be in your own words, demonstrating your understanding and comprehension of the topic. Proper grammar and academic style are expected.
Name your file YourLastName_YourFirstName_CRAAP.docx and upload it to the dropbox for grading.
Your submission this week will be a Word document (.doc or .docx).
