Instructions

REMINDER: Have you turned in your latest assessment (the 8th Assessment, due Tuesday?) Vacation is right around the corner; get caught up now so you can enjoy your time off.


CLASS ACTIVITY: Today we look at how to find the author of a web page. 


Today we'll continue looking at how to do research on the Internet. You and a partner will use multiple search engines to find the answer to a research question. (You'll get the question from your teacher). From there, you'll follow the instructions in the GoogleDoc Template called Internet Searches. Once you open it, you may wish to share it with your partner so you can both type, copy/paste, and fill in information from your searches. 


Please follow the instructions there carefully. The information collect about HOW you collect information is important, and if you don't follow the same instructions as other students, your results might not be very useful.

When finished with the assignment, share it with Mr. Knowles.


STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT WHAT TO DO


REMEMBER: To do your best on summative assessments, you'll need to use not only the information that we've discussed in class, but also include information from outside of classroom activities, either from information you already know, or from additional research you complete.
