Submitting Student Work for the Internet Detectives Web Site
How Will You Know When You're Done?
Before you submit your students' work, take one last look to be sure that:
- The site(s) represent the best work done by students in the class. Err on the side of quality over quantity.
- The title of each site/page is correct. (Students often use the name of the Web page 3 screens back, or make one up.)
- The URL works. (Once you have the correct URL, copy it directly from the Web site and paste it into the document to be submitted for Internet Detectives.)
- The URL matches the Web page described in the annotation.
- Every student's review/annotation features the following:
- Correct grammar, spelling and punctuation
- A description of why/how the site addresses the student's question
- Reference, if appropriate, to illustrations and other features of the site
- Information about the sponsor/creator of the site and the credentials of this institution/person
- Each submission lists
- First name(s) and first initial of the last name(s) of the student(s).
- Classroom teacher's name
- Librarian's or/and computer teacher's name
- School name
- A question describes the focal point of the student research.
- Does this question require the use of higher-order thinking skills?
- Where can I find a list of endangered species?
- What is the state of endangered species in Wisconsin and the Midwest?
When everything is ready, here's the last step:
- Submit your finished work in an electronic format. Either attach it to an email message or send it within the body of a message to

|Title of site:||Cofrin Arboretum Center for Biodiversity
|Review/Annotation:||This web site is an awesome place to go to look at endangered animals, plants and other living pieces of life. This site is a very good source of information for all species of living things. It has a chart of all animals with a scarce chance of existing. It shows and explains the diversity of animals and has a lot of links to extra pages for a better research. Produced at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, this quality site provides a great educational experience.
