Product Description
The Internet is the first place many of us look for basic information. But how do we know what to trust?

This presentation outlines basic things students can look for - the web address, author and authority, sponsorship, and content considerations. All of these considerations are on a easy-to-use document (both the editable Word document and a .pdf) for students to use when evaluating any website.

I use this presentation toward the start of my sophomores’ research unit – we research careers, so our primary source is the Occupational Outlook Handbook (found online), and then I ask students to find one more source (at minimum) on their own. I then have students fill out one of the source evaluations for each source they use for their research. (Telling students they have to fill out a sheet for each source used also deters them from using Google to search for each bit of information required!)
