Product Description
Evaluate and Cite! Resources for Student Researchers

Thank you for visiting my store and downloading this free resource!

Now, more than ever, students need the ability to select resources that are credible and unbiased. It’s crucial for both students and adults to apply effective information-seeking skills whether we are conducting research, choosing a product to purchase, or searching online for a credible answer to any question!

Student researchers stay focused and are more successful when we provide structure during the research process.

The materials in this resource address three important steps during the research process: evaluating resources, taking notes, and citing the sources that you use.

The following materials are included in this download:

The 5Ws Source Evaluating Handout or Flyer;
PIES Method of Source Evaluation Handout;
PIES Source Evaluation Note-Card with Prompts;
Citing Websites Using MLA Source Citation (8th edition) Handout with Examples;
Source Citation List Handout;
Student Research Note-taking Card.

Teachers are also provided with an implementation guide with teaching suggestions and website links to use for student activities and practice!

This resource is designed for secondary students.
