WRT 101/102 - M. Young : Welcome

Objectives of this LibGuide

1. To learn the basics of conducting research using Lateral Reading and/or SIFTing. (Fancy terminology but some of us do this already, and it's a simple process; time consuming, but simple)

  • We'll discuss what Lateral Reading and SIFTing are and how to use them to find credible sources.
  • I'll demonstrate how to use these methods with one or two websites.
  • We'll practice on a website together.
  • Individually or in pairs, you'll use Lateral Reading and/or SIFTing on two websites I'll provide. You'll also take a short quiz to test your skills.
  • With whatever time is left, find one or two websites using your selected topics. I will walk around the room if you need help!
  • ​​​​​​​Evaluate your librarian, Sol Gómez
