What is the goal of the site?
Does it achieve the goal?
Is the site relevant to you?
Can the information be checked?
Is the site current?
Is the site biased?
Does the site offer different view points/choices?

You should also have a good understanding of how to create a presentation using PowerPoint and be able to present a presentation in an organized manner.

Follow-up Activities:

  The teacher will bring up various sites on the projection screen and have the class quickly identify if they are reliable sites and why.  Students could share their presentations with other classes thus teaching other students how to evaluate websites.
