Today, with a PARTNER, I want you to search for two articles about President Obama.

I want one to be RELIABLE. That is, we can trust the source and the information in it.

I want one to be UNRELIABLE. That is, we may not be able to trust the source and some or most of the information in it.

I am purposely not discussing what it means to be reliable or unreliable. I would like you to discuss it with your partner and make the determination yourselves.

Afterwards, print them out. Please do not write on the articles.

Then, as a pair, write a brief paragraph on the UNRELIABLE source, pointing out why you believe it is unreliable.

I need you to be finished by the end of the period. I will collect them before you leave.

Please staple your two articles together, write your names on the top, and put them in one pile. Then put your paragraph in a separate pile.
