Assignment description and sample topics: Stephanie, Alan, and Torie all know
of my Writing 115 Colony Collapse Disorder -- the bees are back! The
students need to find three or four legitimate sources on CCD, and they can't
use Wikipedia as a primary source.
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)
- Differentiate between scholarly journals and magazines (15 minutes)
- Construct a query for journal, magazine, or newspaper articles and
evaluate best choices in the results list (25 minutes)
Other notes:
I really want them to focus on the databases more than Google search, but
some time on Google is OK.
