(Can you identify additional sources that are worth exploring to round out your students' knowledge of their question? Rather than set them loose with a search engine to see what they can find, do some information harvesting and point them to information-rich, reliable sites you have found.

The lesson developer may use the following sources to prospect for good sites but then lists them for students just as this teacher did (example)

Keep only the information pertinent to your own issues and questions.
