Choose a health topic and conduct a google (or other search engine) search. You will then evaluate and analyze (in a written paragraph) 5 of the search returns that are not government sites. For example, you cannot use the CDC or similar (.gov). Use the Evaluation Criteria in Chapter 9, in the section Evaluating Information on the Internet to evaluate each site. This includes currency, relevance, authority, accuracy and purpose.
Assign each site a 1-5 star rating, with 5 being the best (you are not ranking your sites 1-5, so they all might be ranked a 5 if you feel they deserve it) and why you ranked it as you did. Your final paper will be one written paragraph per site, for a total of 5 paragraphs.
