    I liked the approach of having students critically examine who is placing the information online and their motives for doing so. The insights in this interview will help literacy instructors know how to more effectively focus their sights to achieve their goals of improving student comprehension.

    finding strategies to help internet readers to learn to read more efficiently is important and teaching students how to evaluate website information is important...these are skills students need to be equipped with and use.

    Students should be able to understand the propaganda and bias on different topics and how someone can write to help you believe their thoughts. They also should be able to decide whether a website is a valid choice for information.
