What is an evaluation tool you can use to determine the overall effectiveness and relevance of an article or source?
The CRAAP Test is a great tool as it forces you to look at the currency, relevance, accuracy, authority, and purpose of the article forcing evaluators to look critically at the source for biases, and more.
Why is it important to use Boolean Operators primarily while navigating databases
Unlike standard search engines like google, databases are precise and rely on key words or terms to locate specific information. By using conjoiners such as AND, OR, and NOT, researchers can tailor their search allowing for more exact results.
Why would you consider folklore an antecedent genre to fiction?
Fictional stories are tales that can have real life elements, or very abstract elements, generally used to express representation of societal values and more. Folklore does the same thing using solely fictitious elements to tell their tale. Folklore and Fiction often both have genre constraints which help to further identify the genre in which they are associated. A number of constraints seen from folklore can be seen represented in the genre of fiction.
