Reflection: Continuing Work on Locating Sources: Evaluating Usefulness - Section 3: Two-Minute Warning: Wrap Up and Reminders


As students have struggled with locating sources and with putting the correct string of words together to search for their topics, not all have had the opportunity to locate and evaluate the required three sources. Given the time it took to introduce the database search options, and the shortened class tomorrow for the Homecoming parade, they ended up only having a net two days of work time to locate sources. We will return to the library one final time tomorrow so that I can conference individually with each of them, looking over their source cards and completing their look for valid resources. Anyone not completed in class tomorrow, however, will need to complete their look for sources on their own, using home access to databases or the public library.
