  9. 9. Reflection <ul><ul><li>We researched how to find credible information on the internet. It was a lot of fun looking at Hoaxes but it was hard to tell if some of the things were true. We looked at a lot of sites telling us how to check for credibility and came up with this system to test. Check for Author, institution or organization, the writer’s bias, if the information is current, check the sources cited, and what kind of site you are looking at. Finally, we test things out on the site Snopes which gives us information on hoaxes, rumors, scams, and Urban Legends. </li></ul></ul>
