Storm Area 51 Event

Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us


Scenario: For the upcoming assignment, I have decided to look into the Storm Area 51 Event that was started on Facebook. I found a variety of articles from the internet, and now I need to decide which ones are good to use, and which ones are not. 


As a Group:

  1. Look through the sources and determine which will be good sources to use to provide background information about the Storm Area 51 Event.
  2. Justify why you said a source was good or not.
    • Create a list of things you looked for to determine if the information was good and useful to you.
    • Explain how you verified this information.
