Reflection: Checks for Understanding But Its On The Internet - Section 3: Explore


Evaluating a website is a critical thinking activity that will be continuously assessed throughout the year. The students will keep using the CITE IT tool and the skills they began to develop in this lesson in all projects. This is why I included the rubric for this task as a quick way to identify progress over time on two specific Common Core standards:

  • thoroughly assesses the quality of information (considers usefulness, accuracy and credibility; distinguishes fact vs. opinion; recognizes bias) (CC 612.W.8)
  • justifies choices made when evaluating a website, by giving valid reasons with supporting evidence (CC 6-12.SL.4)
