Further to my last post, depending on the assignment that students are completing and the information literacy skills focus for that assignment I sometimes provide students with a page of suggested sources. I have a blog, which I link to off the school library's website, to quickly create Assignment Links.
If you take a look you'll see two entries. I usually give the kids some tips for searching before listing the sites I recommend. For the countries assignment which a Gr. 8 class was doing I also created a Google custom search engine which would send them to the sites we wanted them to use.
