Common Sense Media: Identifying High-Quality Sites (6-8)
http://www.commonsen...
In this Common Sense Media lesson, students discuss how print materials (books and newspaper or magazine articles) are published. Then they compare and contrast this process with publishing on the Internet, learning that there are no built-in checks for accuracy or quality on the Internet. Therefore, they must use their own criteria to judge the trustworthiness and usefulness of websites. After this lesson, students will be able to understand how the ease of publishing on the Internet might affect how much they can trust the content of some sites, learn criteria that will help them evaluate websites, and apply the criteria to a site to determine how trustworthy and useful it is.
