Rambone: Peer Pressure Research: Websites

Using Appropriate Websites for School Research

  • No Wikipedia

  • No "Answer" websites:  About.com; eHow.com; Askville; Answers.com; and Yahoo Answers

  • No Blogs

  • Generally .gov and .edu sites are the most trustworthy, followed by .org and then .com

  • When you find a website you would like to use, make sure you find out the sponsor of the website.  

  • The sponsor can usually be found at the bottom of the website near the copyright date.  If it is not there, check the "Contact Us", "About Us" or "FAQs".
