Today we will investigate the  contested topic of Area 51 & the reliability of sources. On this website you will find numerous documents related to the topic, such as  photos and videoclips. You will examine each document and answer the questions  provided. The questions should help guide your thinking as you come to your own conclusions about this topic. Under each artifact (eg, a photo or participant account) you will find questions to guide your analysis. You need to  thoroughly  answer each of these questions in your notebook.
