However, it is a good source for students that are looking for practice in any subject, because it provides both quizzes and games that help the students further their knowledge. This site it very student friendly and contained a lot of multimedia, making it more appealing to the student’s eye. I would recommend this site for any grade and any subject for extra practice. .

Teachers Discovering Computers, 5th Edition Page 2 of 4 Web Site Evaluation Form Website Title: SparkNotes: Today’s Most Popular Study Guide URL: www.sparknotes.com th Target Learner: 5 grade Subject/topic: Reading Evaluator: Lana Nicole White Date: 4/4/10 Instruction: Use the following criteria to rate the quality of the website of your choice (1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest). Be sure to provide a rationale to support your judgment and recommendation of the website.

Other than objectives being stated, and bibliographical references, this site is not lacking anything. It provides not only most every novel/play, but also a summary of the storyline, possible plots/themes, information about the characters, as well as information about the setting(s). Furthermore, for works that are hard to read (Shakespeare, for example), Spark Notes provides the reading in modern English, to make it much easier to follow and understand. This is a great website, and I would recommend it to any student or teacher who is looking to further their knowledge on a reading. Web Site Evaluation Form

It was last updated in 2005. However, it is providing information on a book, “The Giver”, and may not necessarily need to be updated to provide good, concrete information on its topic. Also, this site does not display a lot of color and lacks various forms of multimedia, making it less visually appealing. On the other hand, the information provided seems to be very reliable and does not seem to be biased at all, making it a good site for students to reference to if they are looking for information on “The Giver”, because not only does it provide a summary of the story, but it also provides information about setting, characters, plots, etc. Web Site Evaluation Form

Teachers Discovering Computers, 5th Edition Page 4 of 4 Website Title: The Lesson Plans Page URL: www.lessonplanspage.com th Target Learner: 5 Grade Subject/topic: Reading Evaluator: Lana Nicole White Date: 4/4/10 Instruction: Use the following criteria to rate the quality of the website of your choice (1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest).

This purpose of this site is to aid teachers in lesson planning, project planning, and quiz make-up. The main thing this site was lacking was clearly stated objectives and bibliographical references. Also, the multimedia could have been improved, as well as a map to help navigate the site. I would recommend this site to any teacher needing tips on lesson planning and class projects. I would also recommend this site to aid in creating quizzes for classes, though I think there are other sites that would be of better assistance for quiz making. Furthermore, this site is credible, copyrighted, and does not seem biased at all, making it a legit resource for teachers.
