This Advanced 4: Searching for Evidence for Research Tasks lesson plan also includes:
Research was very different in the past. Pupils once had difficulty finding sufficient information, but now they have the opposite problem. Show your class how to pick the best resources out of the millions of sites an online search will bring up. The class will practice using Google Scholar, a great resource for class members with high reading levels. Allow partners to play around with Google Scholar and compare the results to a general Google search. In addition, class members can find other tools to help with research and try out a challenge presented by the teacher. A useful presentation is included as is a supplementary handout on search tools.
