Web Literacy: Where the Common Core Meets Common Sense

In the second of their three-part series revisiting Alan’s earlier article, Teaching Zack to Think, Alan November and Brian Mull dig deeper into their three pillars of Web literacy. They share examples that demonstrate the struggles that the majority of students and adults have effectively researching on the Web. In addition, they share techniques that can be used to boost research effectiveness.

Also, Alan and Brian expand on two driving forces that create an urgency to redefine what it means to be literate in today’s world: common sense and the Common Core.

If you missed part one of the series, we invite you to read it before reading the new article. Stay tuned for part three.
