Website Lists From the AVA Center

How We Evaluate Websites:

        Excellent -     An excellent site with good information, graphics, links, and educational value.  Usually includes lesson plans.  Usually includes multiple sections and topics. 

        Very Good -   Almost as good as Excellent but not quite, maybe some of the links are missing or there aren't enough of them.  Maybe there are fewer graphics or it's just a smaller site.  Maybe there is just less information or there are no lesson plans or educational sections.

        Good - Frequently a site with a single type of information or topic such as a crossword puzzle or game.  Still has good value as an information or a research site for students or teachers.  Does not contain lesson plans or those that are there are brief. 

Important:  Don't assume that the only valuable sites are rated Excellent.  A "Good" site may be just what you need.

Website lists are designed to be used by teachers and students in grades K-12 although many are not limited to those grade levels.  Where possible, we note appropriate grade levels. 

A Note About Webquests    - What they are - How they work - How to create one  

Many lesson plans, classroom activities and webquests are easily adaptable
to your location or other grade levels.
