ENGL 113 VanEyk: Comparing Resources

Comparing Styles of Information Sources

In your pair, compare the different types of resources linked below. Questions to consider.

  1. How long are they? How much information does each contain?
  2. Who are the authors and how do you establish their credibility?
  3. Who do you think are the intended audiences? How can you tell? What is their writing style?
  4. If you were using these sources to support an Analytic essay on a brand like Patagonia, would they be useful? If so, in what way?
