Search Skills Activity

For this activity, you will conduct a search in one of the search tools linked in the box on the left.  I will assign you which search tool to use. Follow the steps below to complete this activity.  You should take notes on a piece of paper or in a Word document, but these notes will be to guide our discussion--this is not for a grade or to turn in. Be prepared to share your knowledge and searching skills with the class!

  1. Conduct a search for internet and procrastination (type those exact words!) and browse your results.
  2. What kinds of sources did you find in this search tool? You might find scholarly articles, magazine articles, encyclopedia articles, and more. If you aren't sure, do your best to explain.
  3. Were these sources credible? How can you tell?
  4. What is the purpose of these sources? How can you tell?
  5. What advice would you give to your classmate regarding how to use this specific search tool?
