Doing Research - Where Do I Start?
Good researchers need a variety of sources to do the best job possible. Not all resources are appropriate for every task. That is why there are so many choices out there. The purpose of this web page is to provide some of the best for student use. Some sources are general and can be used in most cases. Other sources are VERY specific and can only be used when researching one particular topic. Please take time to make sure that you have chosen wisely.
Check out these resources before starting a research project. A good researcher always wants to make sure that they are organized. The Big6 will keep you focused on what the project is. You will need to review the Big6 steps before beginning. Then you will need to get a project organizer from Mrs. Berbeza. If she is not available, copy one from the Internet! Please double check the Internet Safety Rules before starting research online! You also need to check which resources our library already has, so be sure to check out the Pulaski Library Catalog.
Now that you have gotten the basics, you are now ready to start doing research. There are several different types of resources available. Some are very general resources. To access these, click here.
Others are specialized sources that are experts in the chosen area of information. They will have just the information on that particular subject or topic. To access these, click here.
When you think your project is finished, it is time to give credit to all of the sources you used in the project. Each of these sites must be cited so as to reflect their contribution to your project and to document your ability to do research. Please click here to create a proper bibliography to cite your sources.
Christina Acceptable Use Policy for Computers
Christina School District policy requires all students to have an acceptable use policy on file before use of school computers in the classroom, computer room or the library. The responsible parent or guardian must sign these permission slips BEFORE students may use school computers. Computer usage in the library is reserved for research purposes and OPAC usage only. Misuse of school computers could result in the loss of all or part of computer privileges for all or part of the school year. The forms may be obtained from the office, the computer teacher, or from the District Office at 83 E. Main Street, Newark, DE 19711. Please click here.
Delaware State Standards
I follow a district-mandated curriculum that is aligned both with the Delaware State Content Standards and the National Information Power Standards from the American Association of School Librarians.
