Research cont’d again: Day 128

Today we continued researching, reading, and taking notes. We started a competition yesterday to see who could read the most articles the fastest. So far, here are the results:

1st place: Kylie

2nd place: Kaitlyn, Ellie, and Morgyn

3rd place: Michael and Ecila

HW: For tomorrow, make sure you have read a total of at least two articles, annotated them, and created pink cards for them. Download more pink cards here: Citation Cards 2012

And, once again,

Here are some useful links for your research:

Remember, your search terms should be “Title of the book in quotes” Authorlastname, like “Of Mice and Men” Steinbeck.

  1. EBSCOhost (password is on your handout and is really obvious if you think about a smart bird)
  2. General Reference Center Gold
  3. Google Scholar (remember to uncheck include patents)
  4. Google News (you MUST click the drop-down box arrow in the search bar and in Date added to Google news, click in Archive)
  5. Google (search for “Book” author interview)
  6. YouTube (search for “Book” author interview)
  7. Last resort: search Google and look for reliable, non-blog websites.
