Are your students "search savvy"?
Is it CRAP, or is it trustworthy?
Search by Domain (and other Search Operators)
To search by domain (or to search a specific site), add site:+the site or domain you want to search. For example, if you are searching for articles on Syria, use Syria site:nytimes.com and Syria site:.gov (to search just articles on www.nytimes.com or articles on .gov sites). Or, students can do this through Google Advanced Search.
*With .edu sites, just be aware some sites may be student created if a school's domain is .edu.
Keywords? Boolean Operators?
You can also use Boolean Operators or symbols to search. Use - to take away results (jaguars -cars). Put search terms in quotes to get specific phrases together. More Information
