Jaime Parker's curator insight, July 10, 2013 11:22 AM

I have a friend who teaches English courses at the college level and this is her biggest complaint. She says that the students simply do not know how to research. They don't know how to use databases or how to evaluate websites which seems so crazy to me. I'm not sure why these skills aren't being taught or integrated into every content area. Perhaps too much time is being spent preparing students for standardized testing.

Absolute must resource if you think teaching our students about academic integrity is important - espcially in the wake of the tsunami of information that we are experiencing!  Thanks again Joy Rosario.
