After completing this tutorial individually, groups of 3-4 students will look at and evaluate two websites using the criteria set forth in the tutorial. They will then decide which, if any, of the websites they would include in a research paper. If time allows, groups could come together and discuss what they learned and what was surprising to them. Sample websites for evaluation: http://www.martinlutherking.org/ http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/1964/king-bio.html http://www.dhmo.org/ http://www.sparky.org/news.html http://www.helmets.org/stats.htm http://deathpenaltyinfo.msu.edu/ http://people.smu.edu/rhalperi/
