First:Complete the online tutorial

Go through this online tutorial which addresses the importance of web evaluation.  After you are finished, answer the questions on your Rotten Apples sheet. 

Second:Review two sites about Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here is your research scenario:Mr. Waite and Mr. O'Sullivan have asked you to provide an overview on the Civil Rights reformer Dr. Martin Luther King.  You need to supplement the textbook with ONE outside source. Evaluate the following two web sites using the web Evaluation Checklists provided.  When you are finished, decide which of the pages is the most accurate, authoritative, and best-suited to your needs as a student?  Why?  Defend your decision.

Third:Find a reputable, authoritative website about your reformer

Use a web Evaluation Checklist to evaluate a website on your reformer to use for this project.  Skim through a few sites before completing the evaluation.  You want to find a reputable site that you would recommend to other researchers!  You can also use the links from the RFK page.  No Wikipedia, although you could use Wikipedia to see which sources were used in its' entry on your reformer.
