Students need to learn how to evaluate digital data by determining the value of a website. Have them practice this skill before they need to begin research for a project.
This lesson is more than just a checklist (though students will receive a nifty checklist!) -- it offers four different websites for students to evaluate
and think critically about what different websites offer.
You can choose how your students practice:
they can work independently, in centers, or with a partner.
You can determine what and how much they practice.
I've included five websites -- use one to model the lesson and the other four for additional practice. You can provide additional practice with other websites of your choice.
This resource includes:
*Evaluation Questions that can be used for any online resource
*QR codes/websites -- one to model the lesson and four for student use
*Formative Assessment with QR code and website
*Answer keys ...
*and, of course, a student checklist!
