Abstract_______________ This paper describes web literacy instruction we developed and implemented in response to our students &apos; needs as part of an EFL academic skills preparation curriculum. The goals of the instruction are to introduce critical reading strategies and develop computer literacy skills. It is grounded in two fundamental facts: students need specialized strategies and skills, which are different from those used with print, to access and read online information, and students need critical thinking skills and strategies to examine and evaluate that information, much of which is unregulated. A brief overview of the three teaching phases that form the fifteen-week instructional framework is provided followed by a detailed description of each teaching phase. The discussion includes rationales for inclusion, learning objectives, and teaching procedures.
