Related ELA Standard: RI.7.8

Core Standard

When you are critically evaluating the work of an author you will be required to do some research. This can be done several different ways. If an author cites the work of anyone else to validate their claim, it is pretty easy. View the source that cited and first makes sure it an established authority on the subject and review their work. If the author doesn’t use a source, you should hit the references available to you and find the means to validate it. These worksheets will have students evaluate the work of various authors and look for a means to validate their claims.
