Research Skills: Where to Search, Boolean Operators &Searching Symbols Notes & Wkst.
If your students are like mine, they want to begin their research with Google. AND not that Google can't bring reliable sources, it is just that there are many other places to start that may give students what they are looking for more quickly. This product will teach your students where and how to search.
This product includes
1) A two page hand out with one page being an annotated list of places to search and methods to searching. The second page is an informational sheet on boolean operators and searching symbols (for Google). There are several examples.
2) There is a practice/experimental worksheet for boolean operators and searching symbols. Two versions are included--one version has two per page and the other is a whole sheet-- some of us have to watch our paper usage.
3) A KEY (on a separate PDF) for the boolean operators/seaching symbols activity
This PDF is ready to print and is formatted in a sleek easy to read and use format. Also included are a word and pages versions so you can make changes to the document if you want!
Expect to take about 35 minutes to complete the notes and experiment.
