Critical Thinking Article Review by Danaa Ross for Management 350 written January 08, 2004This article addresses the usefulness of children searching the web during school hours.

(ProQuest) The web is the only place to get information resources if the library doesn't have them? This statement is post hoc ergo propter hoc, because it is stating, just...
