Site evaluation exercise for World Lit


Imagine your group is looking for information on bullying.  Appoint someone in your group to record the group thought processes and search strategies as you work through your evaluation.  You may be asked to summarize the steps your group went through at the conclusion of the exercise.

  The articles to evaluate are published at these links:  Bullying at School: Never Acceptable on the site of the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds – the College) and then  Stigma: At the Root of Ostracism and Bullying on the site of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP – the Academy).
