Reflection: High Expectations Choosing Reliable Research Sources - Section 2: Choosing Reliable Sources

 

I would like to think that students choose poor sources simply because they don't know any better (hence this lesson to solve the problem); however, I do suspect that poor sources are often a result of lazy research: enter search term, select first website, use, and move on. On the bright side, by requiring students to assess their sources for credibility, I am solving the lazy research problem, too (or at least docking them for their laziness).
