This How to Locate and Evaluate Information, Part I - Online Catalog lesson plan also includes:
Using the online catalog, researchers locate and record on a citation template specific sources for their research paper. A library specialist models searching strategies while the teacher introduces the research paper process. Daily checks of the template afford feedback on progress, source citation, and source appropriateness. It also forms a solid beginning for research skills. A follow-up session on how to evaluate source accuracy and validity would complement this instructional activity.
