    In our reading class this week, we worked on how to evaluate a website. We are really trying to get them to stop relying on Wikipedia this year because it's just not trustworthy.

    Anyway, one of our teachers found this site on the elusiveTree Octopus to show our students. You wouldn't believe how many fell for it!

    We also used this supposedly college American History site. The kids didn't even question the War with Switzerland. :eek:hmy:

    you can use this website. It gives you the group responsible for the site. Then you would have to look up the group. easywhois.com it is pretty neat.
