Students explore the idea that anyone can publish on the Internet, so not all sites are equally trustworthy.

Students will: understand how the ease of publishing on the Internet might affect how much they can trust the content of some sites; learn criteria that will help them evaluate websites; apply the criteria to a site to determine how trustworthy and useful it is.
