Instructional Lesson Topic/Grade Level

Reliable Sources Grade 8 Early Adolescent

Rationale
It is important for students to know what reliable sources are and where to find them. This
lesson is designed to help students weed out sources that are not reliable and find accurate
information for research.

Learning outcomes
Students will learn the components to reliable sources including but not
limited to authority, objectivity, authenticity, reliability, timeliness, relevance,
and efficiency.
Students will learn how to look for clues on reliable sources including but not
limited to the web address, domain, checking for sponsors, tracking, cross-
checking data, etc.

Standards/ Benchmarks Met


I used the 88h grade CCSS as a guideline for this lesson plan. These are the
following ELA CCSS, which will be met:
RI.8.1, RI.8.7, RI8.8

Guiding Question
Students should be able to determine reliable sources through the following questions:
Is this source reliable according to the following: authority, objectivity, authenticity, reliability,
timeliness, relevance, and efficiency?

Planning Commentary Instruction & Assessment


1. Students will begin the class by reading their ReadMore book.
2. Students will then be introduced to components of reliable sources, taking notes
in their ELA notebook in the notes section.
3. Students will go through reliable and unreliable sources as a class.
4. Students will then get in groups and move around the room doing a round robin
to determine if an array of sources are reliable or unreliable.

Accommodations for Exceptional/ Struggling Readers


Students may work in partners or small groups if they are struggling with the assignment.
Students struggling with reading can be read to, or may have an audio book.
Exceptional readers are encouraged to make connections on reliable and unreliable sources.
