Today we continued our presentation about going beyond google and how to search the web for reliable and usable sources for your upcoming argumentative papers.
Today we started researching our research requirements for our argumentative paper. While we all have used Google, very few people feel comfortable using all the very easy to follow key words, and characters that help refine a search. Very few middle school students have used scholar searches or book searches using google. This ppt or powerpoint to use file type, helps us in our process as we continue to improve how we research.
Tomorrow is a bring your technology to class day.
