  8. Teaching students to evaluate websites • Read page 1 of the article and think about these questions. • How has the Internet changed student research? • What do students have to do now that they did not have to do in the past? • Why is this good in some ways and bad in others?

  9. Teaching students to evaluate websites Looking at questionable websites www.allaboutexplorers.com http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/

  10. Use student-friendly rubrics or checklists to evaluate websites http://lrs.ed.uiuc.edu/students/rtrieger/evalwebsites.htm

  11. Where students can go for research information • Subject-specific websites • Student-friendly search engines
