This is an excellent lesson focusing on an essential skill in this information age. As students are inundated with information, they need to be taught how to discern and sort through all the noise. Doing online research well is crucial to their academic and career success. This lesson should be a requirement for every high school student, and could even be repeated to emphasize its importance. It is a great way to start a research project.

This lesson is designed to help students develop a deeper understanding of authoritative research resources on which to base their writing.  The lesson involves quintessential bibliographic instruction activities and librarians and media specialists will be delighted to deliver and/or play a critical support role in delivering this content.  Students are challenged to make use of their media center, media specialist, and the high quality online research resources available to them.

This goal-directed lesson plan is focused on teaching students how to determine whether or not an internet source is creditable or not. This was clearly stated under the section titled problem/need. The lesson plan walks users through specific steps on how to use the lesson plan. The plan itself provides students with several ways to access the information being taught by using different forms of teaching. The students are taught a concept, misconceptions are corrected through assessment and discussion and then a constructive on project is facilitated.

No technical issues to report
