⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Christine H. says... "I bought this for a student who has learning and attention issues. His mom wanted him to dive into research skills. This resource was easy to use and was a great introduction to dive into how to do online research. The slides are easy to read, and the exercises are great either for independent practice or demonstration. Highly recommend. I can see using this with other students next year."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Toni H. says, I am creating a journalism/digital media class. This is such a good resource for my students. It really helps them to understand and identify keywords for searches.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Ashlee H. says My students thought they knew how to do a good search, but found when we went through this that they were asking Google WAY too much! Once they simplified their searches, they found they got a lot more meaningful content.

❤️I have taught this to thousands of students and adults, and it is an all-time favourite no matter who you are or what you do. Use this TpT BEST SELLER within the context of a broader research skills / digital citizenship/media literacy unit to maximize its impact on students.
