The Mayan Calendar:
a Web Site Evaluation Assignment

The world is always in a state of emergence, never static. It has been created and destroyed and created and destroyed and created again.

Part One

Since the world did not end in 2012, please consider the topic of the Mayan Calendar. Take a brief look at all of the following five sites to get a sense of which ones are reliable sources of information.

  1. The Sacred Maya Calendar
  2. Beyond 2012
  3. Dreamspell Calendar
  4. Maya Calendar
  5. Portals of Destiny

Part Two

Once you have looked at all the sites, select two of them to evaluate more thoroughly. Think about the criteria and questions that have been discussed. You may use this evaluation checklist to help you complete the assignment.


Note to Instructors: Please let me know that you have used or are planning on using this assignment.
