It is very important to evaluate websites before including any information that you find in your essays. Here is a checklist that you can use in order to see whether the website is a reliable resource. The more "yes" answers you can give to the questions below, the more reliable the website.
Remember for your assignment, if non-academic works (news, website, other) are brought in, these are supplementary and do not count as sources. These should be used carefully, with disclosure of the source, used only to demonstrate examples, and not as strong support for the essay's actual thesis/claims.
