Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Mapping a Route to Research: Student Info Card Creation (Day 1 of 2) - Section 2: Into Uncharted Waters: Student Research Time


While my tone in the video is supportive of my students' efforts today, there were a few incidents of students struggling with finding their original source. The class conversations (and student questions) provided numerous opportunities to help my students develop an understanding of research concepts. Sometimes, this was easy to fix, as with the "Can't Find Article" video , the student just needed assistance with the search terms to bring the authoritative digital source back up in order to gather the relevant information. In other cases, however, we were unable to find the article at all, as in the case of "Can't Find Article 2," in which I took over the search and was still unable to locate the original, and the student found he had to assess and evaluate the usefulness of an additional source in order to supply evidence for his claims. In "My Research Changed My Mind," a student realizes that she no longer agreed with her initial argument, and asked if she could switch sides. I allowed it based on her research already being mostly complete.
