The Process

  • You will be broken into groups of three where each of you will select to be one of the designated roles.
  • You will go to and evaluate the pre-selected web sites to see if they are valid and reliable.
  • During this process, you will complete the appropriate section of the website evaluation form (one section for each role).
  • Each group will create a PowerPoint presentation and report their findings.

    This lesson will be two weeks long. The class will meet for five 45-minute periods over the two weeks for you to get your work done during class. You will have 3 days outside of class between the final work day in class and presentation day to bring all of your work together.


    DAY 1:   We will divide the class into groups of three and introduce the lesson (all handouts/rubrics will be passed out).  Each group will select 3 of the pre-selected web sites and begin reviewing them.

    DAY 2:   The class will go to the computer lab and each group will work together to complete the website evaluation form for each of the 3 selected sites.


    DAY 3:   The class will continue evaluating their selected websites and finish the website evaluation form.


    DAY 4:   The teacher will review the expectations of the presentation.  Then each group will work together to create the PowerPoint presentation (the rest of the PowerPoint will be completed as homework by the students there will be 3 days in between day 4 and day 5).


    DAY 5: Each group will present their findings orally to the class using their PowerPoint as a prompt. In other words, lead the class through the PowerPoint using your own words. Don't dictate word for word your entire slideshow. The whole class will provide feedback to each group after the presentations.
