Instructions: With a partner, look at each of the two articles linked to below. On a sheet of paper, answer the following questions:

1. Which source is scholarly, and which is popular?

2. What kind of authority does each author have? In other words, what experience, education, credentials, etc. does the author have that helps you decide whether they know what they're talking about?

3. What kind of audience do you think this source is written for? Who is meant to read it?
