College and career readiness requires our students to use new technologies to locate information, critically evaluate and analyze that information, collaborate and connect with others, produce and share information, and achieve personal, professional, and academic goals. The purpose of this paper is to describe online research and comprehension skills of successful Internet readers and make two practical recommendations, using a social studies and mathematics context, for incorporating these skills in the content areas. Content area teachers can help students create a word bank to identify relevant discipline specific information and use a think aloud process consisting of modeling, guided practice, and reflection to model thinking through online sources.
