What political leanings or agendas?
This was from my instructor:
***Heather, Ok start on this but missing the overall assignment objective. Please review my announcement from yesterday and the assignment announcement as well as the critical thinking one. Assessing the literature objectively, studying research methods, discerning truth from opinion is absolutely critical in your research.***
Be objective; Thoroughly research the policy or social issue—from every perspective; Dig deeper on each article, publication, research paper, blog, every source. Ask and answer the critical questions: Is the publication objective or driving an agenda? Who are the authors? What political leanings or agendas? Who funded the research? Why? What agenda? What is the definition of the topic of study? Is it commonly accepted? Did they approach the research with open mind—or start with the answer. What research methods? Dig deeper on those as the findings rely on peer-accepted, valid methodologies. What limitations to the research? What did they find? Do you trust the findings?
This really just needs a little bit of cleaning up
