3. Investigating a Think Tank

Wellesley Career Education offers this Introduction to Think Tanks that we'll review first.

The SIFT method for evaluating online sources suggests you “STOP” and “INVESTIGATE” the “expertise and agenda” of your sources. But how do you find this information?

Our in-class activity will give you practice in quickly accessing important contextual information that will help you interpret and analyze sources from think tanks and other online sources.
