it wakes them up.

incorporate information in their papers and provide more context.
List three things you learned in this session:
“How to search for better results.” “How to see if a source is reliable.” “Very
valuable tips on searching in google that I never knew.” “ I learned that if you put
something in quotations on a search you will get the phrase and not each word.”
List two things you would still like to know after this session:
“More in-depth search strategies.” “Are there any sites with .org, .edu or .gov that
aren’t very reliable?” “More about searching and how to improve my research.”
List one way this session could be improved:
“More class involvement” “Session was appealing to different types of learning”
“Did a lot of hands on activities that actually help” “I enjoyed and learned a lot. It
was fun believe it or not and it taught me a lot.”
