Online Research Lesson Plan

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Daniel Beuchert (Teacher (K-12)), Mar 09, 2011

This is a lesson that definitely has a need in high school, and introducing students to finding good and reliable resources.  So many times students will cite sources that haven't been vetted completely, and that can lead to some issues.  I like how the lesson gives the students motivation to research so that they can be more accurate in their discussions, which will make them want to have better sources.  It might be good to have some samples ready of sources that look good at first, but tun out to be rather misleading or incorrect after researching the source.
