Work-family examples

When you do a web search, you often get a lot of results. Some of the choices will be more likely than others to be "authoritative" -- from trustworthy sources. You could read every hit from a search, but you'd waste a lot of time. It's better to decide what to look at just from the web search results.


  1. Look at what is listed below. With a parthner, talk about which you would choose to click on to get more information for an essay on work-family, and why. Which ones are more likely to be from reputable sources?
  2. After you make your choices, click on two or three. Were they what you expected? Why or why not?
  3. Choose two of these. Read them quickly for information that would support or oppose ideas in Viewpoint Three or Viewpoint Four. Copy and paste a key quote or two into a Word document. Make sure you also copy and paste the URL (the location, starting with http://) and today’s date as the date you visited the site. Don't forget to save your work!
