Education majors need to be able to locate resources when conducting research or looking for published lessons.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Research=RE-SEARCH! It is not a once and done activity. Research requires you to search multiple times in multiple sources using multiple keywords and combinations!!
DATABASE SEARCH vs SPECIFIC JOURNAL SEARCH: There are two main ways you can find online journal articles related to education topics:
SCHOLARLY ARTICLES: Sometimes professors will require you to use only "scholarly" or "peer-reviewed" sources in your assignments. The chart linked below explains what this means. (Hint: If you can buy it at Weis or Barnes and Noble, it is NOT a scholarly source.)
ERIC is an online library of education research and information, sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education. Here's a video for how to use the ERIC website.
