Twilight in the Classroom!

One way to ask students to create their own criteria for evaluating the reliability of websites is through a clip from the popular film Twilight. We see the main character, Bella Swan, use Google to find a website about the Cold Ones and use the website to come to a conclusion about Edward Cullen. Students are asked questions about the reliability of the site based upon what they see and what other kinds of conclusions Bella can draw outside of vampire.

Here is the clip from YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BGVeLelmQc
