7th and 8th Gr. Assignment #26

Learning Goal: Get information from websites with three strategies: a. Reading the introduction for a summary, b. use headings to narrow reading , c. scan text using keywords.

We are going to use three strategies to find information today. Scanning pages for information using key words is a new one. To do this you first think of 2 or 3 words to search from what you are looking for. Then you look around the website for those words, reading short passages in places to find information that is focused on what you need. It takes practice, but is an important skill.
