Research Skills: Evaluating Secondary Web Sources
Learning how to evaluate web sources is an important skill for students to learn. There are a plethora of resources available explaining how to evaluate sources, but most lack the practice students need before beginning their own research.
This product includes
1) A two-page hand out explaining the elements to evaluate. Each element has its own box and specific questions. (20-25 min.)
2) A two-page practice hand out. Four websites are provided and students evaluate the source based on the elements outlined in the notes. A KEY is provided. (30-40 min.)
3) A two-page practice with eight websites to evaluate. Students provide short explanations as to why the source is or is not credible. A KEY is provided. (30-40 min.)
4) A one-page hand out for students to record their source evaluations during the research process.
