  • Hand out chocolates, rubrics, and the craap test
  • You wouldn’t be searching if you already had all of the answers. Uncertainty and uneasiness is natural.
  • Now go out and prove your thesis by finding facts to back up your statement. This is where the real research begins.
  • My goal is to prepare our students for college level research and make the process a little bit easier for them.
  • Almost 800,000,000 results
  • Currency is good… but should not be the only criteria for assessing credibility.Students in this sample used a lot of “self-taught” methods: interface design/familiarity
  • credibility
  • Let’s create familiarity with OTHER websites.
  • Let’s make a policy that we don’t accept Wikipedia as a citation on anything.
  • Managed by a white supremacist group called StormfrontMartinlutherking.org
  • Wto.org
  • Wto.com
  • Satire
  • This is from the online version of the Atlantic magazine… John Fleming, US Representative from Louisiana thought an Onion article was real and announced it on Facebook
  • I like the comment by D “The Onion is satire. How exactly did you get elected?”
  • If you hear of something or read something too good to be true, check it on Snopes.
  • Utilize databases to support our students on research. At college they may have access to 100 databases from their libraries… we seriously have six. Although Ebsco is actually a search engine filled with many more databases…
  • Before I forget.. This is how we access these resources from home.
  • This is page 1 of the database list from Ebsco… “Academic Search Premier”
  • “Professional Development Collection” “Business News” and “GreenFILE” – all environmental information.
  • The HTML versions have some cool features: often indexed to specific contents- but they also have a “Listen” toolbar
  • Some articles are available as PDF… nice
  • Any article comes with this “tools menu” which includes “Cite”
  • Any article comes with this “tools menu” which includes “Cite”
  • Using primary material in your work not only adds credibility to your argument, but it demonstrates that you are an expert researcher.Primary sources are a big part of the common core, too.
  • The national archives has some amazing resources
  • Also from the national archives
  • Joint resolution proposing an amendment (the 19th) to the Constitution extending the right of suffrage to women
  • Primary source sets From the library of congress
  • Academic Integrity/Honesty and the Rubric
  • It’s a big problem in Bollywood right now… there are tons of articles.
  • No more zeros. Let’s make sure that we continue to deal with issues as classroom teachers, but report each instance to the administration (for tracking). No exceptions.
