Take a few minutes to talk about what kind of sources you’ve been working with for your final essays and describe your research process. Have you started finding sources for your topic yet (you should be!!)? Have you found good research on your topic? Are you having difficulty finding material that lines up with what you want to say? What search terms have you been using, and what databases have you been using? Finally, have your sources helped you develop your own ideas, or do you find them in disagreement with your own?
In essay groups:
Try running a few searches through the library database or Google Scholar and see what you can come up with. Try to make sure to think about how the articles you find/have found could be used, or if they don’t necessarily fit with one another. Ask your group members if they have additional ideas of terms you could input in order to broaden your scope of research.
