The SIFT Method

STOP! First, ask yourself whether or not you know and trust the source of the information. Second, if the validation process becomes too obscure, STOP and take a second to remember your goal.

INVESTIGATE THE SOURCE Know what you're reading before you read it. Knowing the expertise and agenda of the source is crucial to your interpretation of what they say.

FIND TRUSTED COVERAGE Look outside of this source to find more credible information that better suits your needs.

TRACE CLAIMS, QUOTES, AND MEDIA BACK TO THE ORIGINAL CONTEXT Trace the content back to the source to better understand the version you are seeing now and determine its credibility.

RECONTEXTUALIZING The theme of these steps is about getting the necessary context to determine if a web source is credible or deceptive.
