Teachers have to be taught that the Internet includes the content of
scholarly journals as well as web sites of dubious reliability, such
as this one: http://www.lme.mankato.msus.edu/mankato/mankato.html
(I mention that one in orientation classes.)  Teachers also need to be
taught to be more precise in their terminology.  Some who say not to
use the Internet probably do know about scholarly journals on the web.
