When I do my lessons with juniors, I like to open up with this video to
remind them that source evaluation is not just something they should do for
research papers--it is something they should be doing all day every day:

After a review of what to look for in a credible site and how to dig deeper
into a sources creation and bias, I give each table group 20 pre-selected
sites to evaluate.  The practice sites are linked on our home page:
It's a mix of sites they should know but don't (such as NPR or PEW), sites
that are credible but have an obvious/stated bias, and sites that are flat
out awful.
