About a dozen years ago, I developed Flash site for my school. As part of the site there is a research section that has an activity that helps Grade 7 students go through determining if a site is useful or a hoax or credible...
It is quite old but still mostly works... I was amazed.
Go to "How to Research" on the left and then select "Five Ws"
It goes through the 5 Ws and then there is a Try it section which was my attempt at interactivity. Students go through and attempt to determine if a site is useful or not. Most of the links still work!!
Why have I included this... well... I find that kids need specific tools to help them determine credibility and usability... like the 5Ws from what was then: Media Awareness Network.
I appreciate your feedback on the lesson plans and activities you find in this section. If you have ideas for more activities, please share them here.Picture from: www.neocate.com
