Overview: The lesson begins with a brief group discussion of what the teachers already know about different web resources. The group as a whole will compile a brainstorm list of web resources already known to the teachers. The instructor presents a PowerPoint on the projector concerning the process of searching online for resources. Additionally, a list of “starter places” to look for web resources will be handed out, along with a copy of the presented PowerPoint. An example of using a search engine will be demonstrated online via the projector for the teachers to see.
