This is perhaps the hardest to judge and that
is why it is last. You will take the longest to
look through the last few candidates to see which
one has the best CONTENT! A GOOD website has lots
of interesting, trustworthy, current, non-biased
CONTENT. The content of the site will teach you
new things, it will help you find other websites
that will assisst in your research. A good CONTENT
website will also direct you to ways to further
your research. It will have a "Works Cited",
or "Other sites" for you to look through.
A GOOD website will also have LOTS of content.
There will be pages and pages and pages of content
for you to look through. You should be overwhelmed
with information on the website.
Here are some useful questions to ask yourself
when evaluating a website's content to see if
it is valuable:
- Does the site cover all aspects of the topic
or is there limited information?
- Does the information meet your research needs?
- Is the information at a suitable level? Can
you understand the information?
- Are other sources cited?
- Are there other useful links?
When you have looked at the remaining sites that
you still have in the running for "Canada's
Next Top Website" and evaluated their content
using the questions above, there should be ONE
WEBSITE THAT IS BETTER THAN THE REST.
THIS IS "CANADA'S NEXT TOP
(YOUR TOPIC) WEBSITE"!!!!!
Congratulations are in order for making it through
this difficult process and for making some tough
decisions. Good for you!
Now, there are just a few
last tasks to finish up.
