Project-Based Learning

Project-based learning activities utilize driving questions where students are required to investigate, explore, and conclude on real-world problems/ experiences.

Scholarly/ Non-Scholarly Activity

New college students are often unfamiliar with the research process or the kinds of sources that they will be exposed to through coursework. They are expected to use authoritative research sources but don't know what that means or how to assign authority to works within context. In this lesson, students are asked to read and analyze scholarly and non-scholarly works to determine (1) if a source is credible and (2) if the source meets their research need. 

Strategic Searching with Google Activity

In this lesson, students will experience strategic inquiry through a tool with which they are already familiar and adept at using. A brief interactive lecture will introduce students to Advanced Search and to Google Scholar.
