Answer:

There are many acronyms to assist in remembering evaluation criteria. All are a variation on the same theme of Who, What, Where, Why, When, and How. Who created the information and the source? What is relevant to your topic? Where is the information located (ie. domain and sponsor of the site)? Why was this information posted and does it contain bias? When was the information created and posted? How would you use this information in your project?

Answer:

I believe that due to his influence on English literature and language from his own time until now that Shakespeare is the greatest English-language writer of all time.
