Teach your students about valid sources using this two-part unit. In the first lesson, students learn …
… the definition of a valid source,
… the warning signs of suspicious websites, and
… the differences in the processes for publishing online and in the print medium.
In the second lesson, students visit common informational sites like Wikipedia and eHow and evaluate their validity.
This package includes detailed plans for the teacher, a customizable student document, and a written assessment (with key).
The unit is provided as a PDF binder, but all files are also included in Microsoft Word format so teachers can modify the materials to meet the needs of their classrooms and their students.
Note: One or more components of this unit (including the assessment) is included in the Goodell’s Goodies fifth grade and sixth grade full curriculum packets.
