We will learn to use the resources available in the library for research purposes, and practice skimming and scanning nonfiction text, note taking, evaluating websites, how to use databases, and avoiding plagiarism. This process will reinforce reading and organization skills, see them practice the use of paraphrasing and citation, and also dive into source evaluation.
