Assignment description and sample topics:
We've been reading William Badke's Research Strategies: Finding Your Way
Through the Information Fog (4th edition) and learning about research
questions and searches. I'd like my students to work on developing their
ideas and searches out of this in-class assignment that we'll complete prior
to the library visit:

Research Log #2 In-Class Activity

William Badke provides an excellent activity related to Chapter 2 on pages
40-41 in your book. I’ll replicate the instructions here, and then we’ll
try this out using the broad topic of “Reality Television.” I’ll pass
out Wikipedia’s article on “Reality television” as well as two other
articles I gleaned from the academic databases through PCC’s library.

1. Choose a topic of interest to you.

2. Get basic information for a working knowledge of your topic from at least
one specialized reference source from the library (not a general encyclopedia
but a subject specialized reference source like Dictionary of Developmental &
Educational Psychology) and from Wikipedia. Compare and contrast the ways in
which the library reference source and Wikipedia deal with the topic.

3. Summarize in about half a page what you’ve learned (your working
knowledge), listing the reference sources you used.

4. Present three or four possible research questions related to the topic, in
question form, which might be suitable for a research essay. These questions
should deal with one aspect of the topic, as narrowly as possible. They
should not be easy to answer, nor should they be intended to describe what is
already known. Try to make them as analytical as you can (seeing them as
problem-solving questions rather than as an attempt to compile existing
data). Try turning each of them into a thesis statement.

5. Choose the one question or thesis statement you think is best.

6. Create a preliminary outline based on your question.

SO, REALITY TV IS THE MAIN, BROAD TOPIC.
Students will be able to (check all that apply):
- Develop a search strategy based on their research topics (15 minutes)
- Perform an efficient search of the library catalog for books and other
materials (15 minutes)
- Physically locate items and other resources (brief library tour ) (15
minutes)
