How do you prepare your students for navigating the resources they find on the web?  Help them become savvy web searchers by providing them with criteria for evaluating online content. Here are some elements you might ask them to consider for the web resources they encounter:

* Purpose            * Authority      * Accuracy

* Timeliness      * Objectivity      * Coverage
