There are many different times where you we find information that contradicts other sources of information that you have found in your research. What do you do? Which source should you trust? The first thing you should do is to classify the source of the information. If it is a primary source that either directly engaged in the event of the topic or was the subject of the topic, it is likely more valid. If that still doesn't satisfy the validity of the sources look for additional sources that could back either one of the accounts. These worksheets will walk you through process of validating sources of information.
