Reflection: Introduction to Locating Sources - Section 4: Two-Minute Warning: Reminders About Tomorrow


Students always have questions. And half of a period (after the mini-lecture on database access and use) is nowhere nearly enough time for me to assist each individual student with his or her needs, and check they have appropriate and "research-able" topics. Given the shortened period the final day this week (for Homecoming festivities) and extra half-hour will not hurt the students. For the students who have completed their source cards, I will also be providing a self-evaluation. Not only will students be asked to reflect on their successes and struggles about their research, but it will provide me with feedback on the manner in which I presented the citation information.
