Evaluating Websites for Appropriateness


The Internet offers a huge resource for students in the learning process. But, it can also provide students with inappropriate sites and content. Teachers must be able to help students learn the importance of evaluating websites and knowing the difference between a good and bad site.

Literacy Matters offers website evaluation criteria for teachers and also some great tools for teachers and students.
