Research support is available at the library reference desk, via Ask a Librarian, and by contacting librarians directly through email, phone or appointment booking.
Start thinking about a topic you'd like to use for your "pre-paper" in Research Fundamentals. You might want to choose a topic related to a class you'd like to take.
Finding books at the library.
At the library, pick up your copy of Essential Writing Skills for College and Beyond by C.M. Gill.
Why use sources?
Why cite sources?
Within your team, find a group of 2-3 people. Your group will be given a book, a journal article, or a chapter in a book to cite. Each group will write a citation for their source.
When all groups in your team have cited their source, the first group will go to the board and write their citation. If the citation is correct, the next group in that team goes to the board to write their citation. If the citation is incorrect, the rest of the team (from your seats), can help the group correct the citation.
When a team has 3 correct, complete, teacher-approved citations, they choose their rewards.
Assignment: For Monday, read Gill, Essential Writing Skills Introduction, pages 2-10. What did you find useful? Based on your experience, was anything surprising? Optional: skim through Chapter 1 (pages 13-50). Do you see a strategy that you think would work well for you?
