Preparing To Search The Internet

Preparing To Search The Internet - This is a PowerPoint presentation by Carol Kotsch. It is geared towards 6th to 8th graders. I just put it up at LibraryInstruction.Com today. A have a few philosophical differences with a few of the points made in the presentation but as a whole I think it is an excellent teaching tool.

From the presentation:

Surfing is not searching.

An hour on the Web may not answer a question you could find with two minutes of picking up a reference book.

Libraries and department stores are planned. No one is in charge of organizing the Internet.
