What is GO-GIRL?

GO-GIRL (Gaining Options: Girls Investigate Real Life) is an enrichment program for seventh grade girls offered by the College of Education at Wayne State University. The program invites girls to become social science researchers and to collaborate in teams with university mentors for 10 Saturdays. During the program GO-GIRLs pursue their own research questions and in the process learn about mathematics, technology, and career opportunities. In addition to meeting in the College of Education, the GO-GIRLs explore the University campus.

Just because a website comes up first, second, or even third in your results list does not mean they are the best sources of information. You need to look carefully and evaluate it in order to determine if it contains good information.

In the short video below, you'll learn the 5 criteria for evaluating websites: Accuracy, Authority, Objectivity, Coverage, and Currency
