Information Types Grid

Now that we have explored some of the information types most often used by college students, it is time to put what you have learned into actionIn this activity, you will be categorizing a set of sources based on the information we covered in this section.


1) Make a copy of the Information Types Grid Google doc (select "Make a Copy" in the File menu).

2) For each source, put an “X” in column corresponding to each category that the source fits into.

3) Share your completed grid with Jillian Amaral.
