5th Grade Website Reliability & Validity Lesson
Over the course of two classes, students will be learning about what it means to critically examine a source. Students will be looking in-depth at websites to determine if they are reliable and trustworthy and, hopefully, walk away with the understanding that just because something is on the Internet does not make it true.
Today I am learning how to evaluate a website to determine its validity and reliability so that I can know which websites I can use for my research project. I’ll know I have it when I am able to thoroughly evaluate a website to determine whether I can trust it or not.
