Web Sources in Research - GENERAL INFORMATION

This guide provides links to many Web sites and specific Web pages related to your topics.  

If a link takes you to the Home page of a Web site, look for a SEARCH box and use your keywords to search for a specific Web page in that Web site related to your topic.

EVALUATING A WEB PAGE Activity

Is this a trustworthy web page?

Go to one of these web pages: 

1. Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus

Then turn to the pink Web Evaluation Note-sheet in your packet and ask/answer the questions in your head for the web page.  (You DO NOT have to write anything down on the sheet.)

Example 1 is from a news web site - CNN.
