Easy Steps For Any Kind of Project
Step 2 - Information Seeking Strategies
- Do you need traditional references, such as an atlas, encyclopedia, dictionary, almanac, or thesaurus?
- Would the computer help?
- Can you ask family or friends for information?
- What about other resources, such as newspaper, videos, magazines, or magazines?
This is a time to brainstorm possible sources for gathering information to get the job done.
Step 3 - Location & Access
- Where are the reference books kept?
- Which web address has useful material?
- Who should ask and when is the best time to talk to him/her?
- How do you select a specific article and/or media clip?
On this step it's important to make sure you're getting accurate information. You don't want to waste any time weeding through worthless stuff!
Step 4 - Use of Information
- Which items do you need in order to make an informed decision?
- What data needs to be kept and what can you delete?
During this step you're in the thick of it. Immerse yourself in the wealth of information you've gathered. Remember to cite your sources!
Step 6 - Evaluation
- Did you make a great grade on your assignment?
- Did you make a wise decision?
Go back and ask yourself the original question that started you down this path. Now ask yourself if it turned out the way it needed to. Could you have done anything differently, or are you perfectly happy with how it turned out?
