Assignment description and sample topics: Students will be starting work on a
topic of their choice related to Jon Krakauer's *Into the Wild.* Topics may
include the role of wilderness in American life; voluntary simplicity; hobo
lifestyle; dysfunctional father-son relationships; initiation and
coming-of-age rituals involving wilderness. Students will have chosen a
topic and will be starting to look for sources. They will be beginning to
construct an annotated bibliography of relevant materials.
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: If we can have the classroom from 8:00 a.m. to 10:50, I would
like to give the class 40 min or so at the end to look for sources with the
librarian and I circulating among them to offer suggestions.
