Transcript of Research Rapture

Why Research?
1. You need to know things. Important things. (ie. Harry Styles' bday so you can send him a card that he reads and then falls in love with you).
2. It's fun to look smart.
3. It's going to help you in life and make you a more informed, more intelligent person, who can make smart decisions (and that's important).

Warning: YOU WILL USE THESE SKILLS A LOT!
I promise.
How to Research?
Take a deep breath, my friends.
Things are about to get real.
Let's talk about:
Good Sources of Information.
Website Reliability?
Can you trust it?
Is the information accurate?
Things to look for:

1. Who is the author (look for credentials)?
2. When was it last updated/created?
3. Content...is there a lot of info? Too much? Do they make grammar/spelling errors?
4. Purpose...are they trying to persuade you? Sell you something?
5. Do they site sources? Can you confirm the info?
You're ready to research!
Go forth and do it.
This is pizza cat.
Do you think he can eat a whole pizza at once?
No.
He eats his pizza slice by slice.
Research, By the Slice:

I Research
(and So Can You).

1. Define your question.
What do you want to know?
EXACTLY what info do you need?
BE SPECIFIC!
2. Make a strategy.
What sources can you use?
Where will you look for the information?

A Step By Step Guide.
3. Locate sources and find information.
Will you use the Moore online resources?
Will you use a Google Advanced Search?
4. Use the information.
READ! TAKE NOTES!
Try to understand what you are researching!
5. Put it all together.
Organize your info.
Do your project.
Yay, you.
6. One last slice...Evaluate your project.
Are you proud of your project?
Did you earn a good grade?
Pat yourself on the back.
You finished your pizza!
Good Sources of Information.
The Moore Website
http:\\moore.redlandsusd.net
The Digital Content Portal (World Book Online, Ebsco Student Research Center)
Gale eBooks
Google Advanced Search
Be specific
Really think about the information you need.
Sometimes you have to be clever when you are researching something complicated. Break your topic down into parts.
Write "none of these" words to limit results.
