Even prior to the adoption of Illinois' media literacy requirement, Stanford University had researched student search patterns and developed a curriculum for teachers/specialists to educate students on evaluating online sources. I am a biology teacher who worked on a teacher-led team for 3-years with Stanford to implement a cross-curricular Civic Online Reasoning experience for all freshmen. Our program was highlighted in Chicagoland All Things Considered (NPR) and Scripps National News Literacy Week. Focus will be on why students need explicit experiences, three online focuses, and designing lessons for immediate use. https://cor.stanford.edu/curriculum/ https://docs.google.com/document/d/1t_mVir5PHvfnOKgzm48HCqDPxilpeKwnZ1qf_7CSnek/edit?usp=sharing

Science teachers can take the front seat in teaching students best practices in online searches with mini-lessons embedded in science content.
