1 Review of websites

Ask yourself why is this website a good site?

Is the information credible?

 

My second hook was this. I informed that I love dogs to the students. I asked if I would be a credible or an authortative source on dogs for a paper.

 

Answer is no! They need to find a vet or someone in the medical field who works with animals who woudl be authoratative.
