  3. Hey, I'd have to research it on Google!

    I'm always surprised that students older than 8 aren't already using Google skillfully. I hope that's not too optimistic of me!!

    This is one of the best webpages I've seen about how to use Google skillfully. Scroll down beyond How to Google and read and follow directions:

  5. If students expect Google to give them "the answer" right at the top and very obviously, they are gravely misinformed.

    But if students are willing to use Google effectively and then read the different search results, that's not cheating. That's researching!
