    • Research in the New Library • I am happy to assist with planning research projects, coaching you and your students, and will team teach with you when you use our resources. • In addition to the traditional print resources, the new library has a computer lab
    • Research on the Web Following is a BRIEF review of what is available along with some cautionary information.
    • Pitfalls It is important to teach students to evaluate web sites. Wikipedia is a great place to find preliminary information or information on pop culture, but it is not an authoritative source. The following example shows the hazards of allowing students to simply Google a topic.
    • Search for Martin Luther King on Google. Select “Martin Luther King, Jr. – a True Historical Examination.” On the surface, this site might look reasonable to a student. However, it is a website maintained by Stormfront, a white nationalist group.
    • Evaluating Websites Resources for web site evaluation tools: The Five W’s of Web Site Evaluation: A Primer for Teachers and Students http://www.dianelauer.com/fivewww/webeval.html Kathy Schrock’s Guide for Educators: Critical Evaluation of a Web Site http://school.discoveryeducation.com/schrockguide/evalmidd.htm Don’t forget copyright considerations if using the above tools.
