This game activity will help your students demonstrate their ability to search many different library resources. Students will complete four research tasks: Searching in the database Biography in Context, searching in a general database( i.e. Proquest Central), searching in the library catalog and critically reflecting. The example here uses the short story Oleana and the Thomas Clarence vs. Anita Hill case. The story/court case can be substituted for other topics/stories.
This activity is best completed in a computer lab.
This activity will address the ACRL Framework Research as Inquiry and Searching as Strategic Exploration .
