1. Brainstorm and write down (or send in an e-mail to yourself) as many keywords for your topic as you can think of at this point. Turn to your neighbor if you need help. Do this for at least 2 minutes.
2. Put the most promising keywords in Google and find one website that might be useful. Answer the below questions (in your head or on a piece of paper).
a) What about the information you found looks useful or relevant?
b) Who is the source of the information (name specifically the author, news outlet, or organization behind the website)? Who wrote the content you are reading?
c) Would this be a credible source? Why or why not?
d) Take a mental step back...what does the process of searching Google "tell" you about research?
Discover. Create. Succeed.
