Please start at this web site .

One third of the class will be directed to start at the top of the list, one third at the bottom, and the remaining students will start with Schmoop and work down.  Hopefully, this will result in every web site being evaluated.  Use the Informational Web Page Test sheet as a guide for evaluating each web site.  On a separate sheet of paper list the name of the web site and write down your comments on why you thought the web site was a hoax or real.  Specifically list sites you used to gain further information about the web site being investigated, and what you learned from those web sites.

Links to help you evaluate:
