  • Many students will begin Web searches with multiple keywords that include non-pertinent keywords. Guide students to use fewer words as they build their skills in performing online research.

  • Have students search for various topics that you supply, perhaps related to a current event or a topic being taught in another subject. Students will choose what keywords to use and then record a small selection of relevant websites and share them with a partner or small group.
