Presentation Description

Students can effectively use the Internet to increase their array of research selections, and students should not limit themselves to basic scholarly articles. To eliminate biases, students can freely search government, organizational, and commercial sites to complement their bibliographies. This presentation will supply a simple guideline I designed—Date, Audience, Credentials,Reviewed, Objective (DACRO)—that helps students determine the effectiveness and reliability of basic Internet articles.
