How to use a website

  1. 1.  A search engine like bing or google is not a website  Websites have multiple pages  Websites have an independent web address
  2. 2.  Finding ‘real’ information is difficult  Anyone can put information on to the internet  Difference between creditable evidence and non-creditable evidence
  3. 3.  Who is getting paid is one of the best tests for creditability  Advertisers and free cites should be suspect for real research  College and government websites are very good  Newspapers are strong too  About.com pays experts to work for it
  4. 4.  Nothing and everything  Great source for learning  Terrible source for research  Any member can change any information on the cite  For years, Mrs. Shipp changed the Zebra page to say “A Zebra is a white horse with black stripes or a black horse with white stripes.” Funny but not true
  5. 5.  You may not cite Wikipedia as a source for your paper
  6. 6.  http://www.greekmythology.com/  http://www.mythweb.com/  http://www.theoi.com/
  7. 7.  http://gogreece.about.com/cs/mytholo gy/a/godsclipart.htm  http://messagenetcommresearch.com/ myths/bios/index.html
