In this video, you will do research and find evidence to support each of the points you made.

A solid argument needs evidence to support it, or help prove that it’s true.

Articles, like research studies from reliable sources can help support a point in favor of or against something.

A reliable source is a source of information that provides reasons based on strong evidence.

Reliable sources can include articles written by researchers or professionals in a specific field.

Magazine and newspaper articles might also be considered reliable if they use reliable sources themselves.

Because anyone can be writing them and the information may be inaccurate or not up to date, be careful of using blogs and some websites as reliable sources.

Websites that end in dot e-d-u or dot g-o-v can usually be considered reliable.

These are websites associated with universities and government agencies.
