Hers is an excellent website that walks students through the steps of assessing Internet resources for accuracy, reliability and currency. Our students have never had more access to information than they do today. But too much information, like too much of anything, is not necessarily a good thing unless students have the critical thinking skills to find GOOD information.
In addition to giving students some good strategies to ensure the information they encounter is reliable, the site also provides a game for students to play that focuses on the following items:
- finding embedded evidence
- checking evidence for accuracy
- triangulation of data
Thanks to Howard Griffith for passing along this excellent resource for teachers and students.
