8 Unsubstantiated Claims not supported by other evidence find other resources that support check credibility of other websites include other resources… data base, hard copy

9 Emotional Words words loaded with emotion/feeling attempt to sway readers personal beliefs and judgments heavy use of adverbs and adjectives do not automatically discount, but investigate
