Concerned about ways to help students (and you) use Internet resources more effectively? Try any of these suggestions. Vicki Collins at OSU says if you only have time for one, go to Jan Alexander's site:
Evaluating Web Resources for teachers by Jan Alexander at Widener University.
'Getting the Most Out of Internet Search Engines 'by Oregon State librarians Jeanne Davidson and Cheryl Middleston.
'Thinking Critically About WWW Resources,' by Esther Grassian, UCLA College Library.
'Cut-and-Paste Plagiarism: Preventing, Detecting and Tracking Online Plagiarism' by Lisa Hinchliffe. This is a BIG topic for a very few students. We may want to investigate a service that helps us prevent this type of plagiarism. Hinchliffe advises us to design our own assignments AND to use 'exact word' searches when we suspect plagiarism.
