  • Students will differentiate between different types of citations in order to prepare to use a bibliography for research.Students will discuss how to read citations in order to prepare to use a bibliography for research.Students will demonstrate that they know how to find the Education subject guide in order choose appropriate research sources.Students will discuss the various characteristics of scholarly sources in order to distinguish them from other sources in their research.
  • How to recognize and locate scholarly resources
  • A peer review is evaluation of a person's work or performance by a group of people in the same occupation, profession, or industry. A referee is an authority who evaluates scientific, technical, or scholarly papers, grant proposals, or the like for the publication or funding institution to which they have been submitted. Peer review or refereeing is the accepted method for ensuring that information is of the highest quality.Peer review does not ensure perfect information. Not everything in a journal is peer-reviewed, but most articles are.
  • Go to catalog and show subject headings!
  • How to effectively search the library’s databases
  • What dessert(s) did each person get?Two people may order the same thing.One person may order more than one thing.Divide students into three groups – AND, OR, NOT. Read the problem with them, from the PowerPoint slide. Give each group copies of the menu – two or three copies to share. (Maybe make up the menu on card stock and laminate.) Groups figure out what they can order, and write down their choices. Groups should be prepared to explain their choices. Someone from each group shares with the class, and others can agree or disagree with the menu choices. Also, within each group, students do not have to agree; if they feel they are correct, they can list their choices, and explain/discuss with the class. Answers:AND gets Chocolate covered strawberries OR gets Strawberry shortcake, Chocolate eclairs, Chocolate covered strawberries, Fruit tart, and a Banana split NOT gets Chocolate eclairs, and a Banana split  Extra credit question: Can AND and NOT share a dessert?
  • How to evaluate resources
  • Accuracy Is the information reliable? How do you know?Authority Is the author identified? What are the author’s credentials?Are the credentials relevant to the topic?Currency Is there a date? If it’s older information, is it still accurate or relevant?Objectivity Is the author or organization biased? Does the source represent both sides of the issue? What is the tone of the source?Coverage/Purpose Why is this information being presented? Who is the intended audience?
  • How to distinguish between different citationsHow to use a bibliography (or works cited) to identify potential sources
  • One good way to find good, reputable sources is by using a works cited from a good, reputable source! All it takes is one or two solid articles and you’re on your way!
