Comparing websites for credibility

Judging website credibility
"Whether conducting research for a school project or surfing the Internet at home, students need to judge the quality of information they find. In this series of lessons from Tools for Thought, students develop criteria for a believable website and compare different sites for credibility."

The 12 page PDF has a good lesson flow and some graphic organizers for the teacher to use with students. Suggested URLs will need to be checked and updated as some of the "spoof" sites may no longer be available. (Archived versions might be found via the "WaybackMachine" at .)
