Answering Our Inquiry Questions
To answer our inquiry questions, we researched then analysed information found from various sources that we considered reliable. To determine whether a source was reliable, we evaluated the content deducing whether it was consistent - appeared in multiple sources, credible, suited or related to the question, accurate or precise, and factual or authentic. We summarised the information from the sources chosen and compiled notes using the Cornell Note Taking method. Following this, we wrote our answer to the inquiry question with the knowledge gained.
