Finding Reliable Sources StAIR

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Samantha Slifer (Teacher (K-12)), Nov 07, 2012

This is a great StAIR! This is very useful to students and teachers of all content areas.  I like that you give information for the students to think about that is probing them to think about reliable website. I like that you have the students identify if the source is reliable or unreliable as well as why it is unreliable. It was great that you were modeling and walking the students through the process of figuring out if a website is reliable. It was good that you explained the thought process while you were determining the website’s reliability. It was a good idea to create a screencast and highlight the specific areas that you were speaking of. It was good that you had the students try to determine reliability to certain websites.  This helps to solidify the information that they have learned.  This was a great StAIR and it is applicable to all teachers. 

Technical Remarks:

THe powerpoint was very easy to open.
