Assessing Research Materials

Teaching learners how to evaluate a research source is an important part of the research process. The fresh idea here is that groups first develop a list of reasons why resources should be evaluated, transform these reasons into criteria, use the criteria to develop a rubric, and then test their rubric against two resources (one reliable, one not). Although designed for teacher candidates, the process outlined would work equally well for the secondary classroom.
