Websites in Education

This page provides information about websites for research or classroom use.

Many sites offer lesson plans and free materials/handouts.

Evaluate websites by using the criteria below from the Georgetown University Library.

 

Please see the Web Content for Teachers drop-down menu above to find selected websites in many subjects.

 

 

 

Evaluating Web Information

  • Determine whether your websites are accurate and reliable.
     
  • Remember, just because something is written down does not make it true!

Advanced Search Google

The Google Advanced Search  allows you to be more restrictive in the type of sites you retrieve. Type "advanced search" in the Google search bar and select it from the results list.

How does Google Advanced Search help you be more restrictive?

  • Limits the domain of the sites you search.  If you need sites in education about teaching, look at websites that come from schools/colleges/universities. Type .edu in the bar labeled "site or domain:" located in the bottom half of the page.
     
  • If you are searching statistics in education, type your terms in the bars at the top of the page and limit your results to government sites by typing .gov in the domain search bar. 
     
  • View .org domain sites with a critical eye to ascertain that the site is not promoting an agenda.
