Students frequently believe facts are credible just because they found them on the web. Not so. U.C. Berkeley's discussion of how to tell a web page's pedigree is one of the better treatments we've seen. Librarians and teachers assigning research projects may want to use this page as a model for their own discussion, or simply offer it to their students as required reading. Add this one to your reference bookmarks.

Here's an on-line resource from Duke University offering drop-down instructions for citing more than a dozen different types of sources. What's especially slick is the comparison between Chicago, APA, MLA, and Turabian style formats. This makes the site useful across a wide range of standards and settings. It's the closest we've found to one-stop shopping for research citation help.

tag(s): citations (37), plagiarism (37)

In the Classroom

This site would be useful for any teacher who assigns a research paper, regardless of the subject. Open this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector and share it with students before assigning them a research project. To insure that students are reminded of plagiarism and the importance if citing, copy this link on to any student assignment sheets that contain information about their research paper.

Some of the content on this site does require a premium membership; however, the free daily content links at the top of the page provide a great resource. Consider challenging students to a "word of the day" competition. Have students guess the meaning of the word of the day for an entire week, and reward students who guess correctly.

Use this most-popular search engine because it ranks results by a unique combination of popularity and reputability, making the most reputable/popular sites appear in the first page of results. Don't stop there, however. Learn to use the Advanced searching tools, such as searching for definitions (add definition to your search terms), or even a timeline display of results, where applicable.

tag(s): search engines (58)

In the Classroom

If you ask students to research a person or any topic that has chronological elements, such as a historical event, an arts movement, a biography, an author, etc, add view:timeline as an additional search term, as in thomas edison inventions view:timeline . Try it! For more Google tricks, do a TeachersFirst keyword search on google for other resources and ideas for using Google.
