The 1st Move
STOP asks you to pause before you decide to read a website.
Instead, ask yourself if this website is something you want to read. Are you interested? Do you trust this website? Are you just clicking for no reason or because you are on some type of click cycle?
STOP and follow the next moves before you decide whether you want to share this information on your social media OR include this information in your project.
The 2nd Move
Investigate the Source suggests that you need to learn more about a source before you read it and use it.
There are a few ways that you might investigate a source. These tips are meant to be quick and not exhaustive. Often, you just need to decide whether to go forward looking at information or not.
The Third Move
Find Better Coverage suggests to find sources that are higher quality - more authoritative, more recent, more accurate. You want to know if the claim a source is making is true or false.
You may stop after investigate the source if you aren't satisfied with the information you found. However, you may want to find something closer to the originating source of a piece of information. Questions that may occur to you are 1) "Is this topic accepted by many people?" OR 2) "Is this topic a source of controversy?"
The 4th Move
Trace Claims, Quotes and Media to the Original Context sends you back to the source to determine where this information originated. Returning to the first source gives you more information about what was said. Remember, you can return to the Investigate move when you find the original source.
