Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Here is a sample of how you would complete this assignment.  I'm not sure exactly what your topic is, but let's say that you wanted to write about school uniforms:

Website One: http://school-uniforms.procon.org/

This website is excellent because it offers both sides to the debate.  The information seems to be current since the last updated date is 2015 . There are positions from many different authors.

Website Two: http://www.greatschools.org/gk/articles/school-uniforms/

This website has a lot of great information and again shows both sides of the issue.  However, it is from 2001, so many the information is outdated.  It does list a credible author, but there are advertisements on the website as well, which often take away from credibility.

Website Three: http://www.debate.org/opinions/should-kids-have-to-wear-school-uniforms

This website actually has a neat feature that allows you to see how people feel on the topic.  You can vote on which side of the issue you believe is correct.  It is current, recently updated, offers authors, and it gives both sides of the issue.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
