Feedback on yesterday’s reflections
and Facewall postings
Student Case Studies
Group Thesis Statements
Akamai: Gaia
Because music can
create physiological
changes in the brain
that can lead to specific
emotional responses,
marketing experts
choose specific musical
themes to elicit specific
responses in their
customers.
Refer to: Student Case Studies—Thesis Generation
Akamai: Hi5
Because incidents of
juvenile violence have
recently increased,
teens should therefore
be prohibited from
attending heavy metal
concerts since
aggressive music can
promote aggressive
behavior.
Benson: Curriki
The USA has an
ongoing problem with
homelessness.
Different environments
and sets of rules yield
different approaches on
a state by state basis
with differing results.
Logan: LinkedIn
Using native plants and
materials in addition to
the fire pit technique
produces the most
authentic* Hawaiian
pottery because of the
cultural relevance to
ancient Hawaiian
practice.
*not the word ‘authentic’, may
need revisiting.
Logan: Ning
Creative ceramics can
successfully sustain
artists in Hawaii when
careful consideration
into the financial
aspects (profits,
expenses), customer
desires, location, and
individual attitude and
perseverance is made.
Pompeii: Edmodo
It is important to pursue
construction innovation
because 1) it will lead to
more environmentally
friendly solutions, 2) with
CAD and other
technology tools it is
easier than ever to design
and test new ideas and 3)
innovation is usually
better than current
practices.
Reef: Diigo
Although addictions
have been around
since early
civilizations, video
gaming addiction is a
new phenomenon
that is treatable by
adapting effective
addiction treatment
programs.
Sunshine: TED
Changing land use
laws to include
preserving cultural
landmarks, such as
ancient burial grounds,
will be beneficial to
Hawaii’s economy.
REQUEST!!
Could each group please submit a copy
(scratch paper and Post-Its accepted ) of
the Essential Questions your group created
for Bloom’s Taxonomy?

Essential questions—Day 3
How do we help students develop useful
search strategies?
How do we help students recognize the
range of available sources and identify which
resources will best meet their needs?
How do we help students map their research
journey?
Challenge 5
How do we help students develop
useful search strategies?
Searching and resources
Without instruction, students will utilize
whatever they find on the web
Let’s teach them search strategies and evaluation
techniques
Have students think about the resources they use
Topic Web
Use Topic Web handout with students as they
explore their topic
Different way to outline a topic
Start with broad topic
Explore sub-topics
Outline 3 main ideas from the narrower topic
Topic Web

Fact or Fiction?
Evaluate your sources!
Goal is to produce knowledgeable users
Provides guidelines for evaluating sources
Makes students think about the usefulness of
sources instead of accepting the first set of
results
Refer to: Fact or Fiction?
Wordle
Use Wordle to visually map out important
keywords, related words from article or
resource
More prominent words in article are larger
Teach students about related words, narrower
terms to enhance their search strategies
Move beyond the same 2 keywords used in their
searches
Wordle
“Widespread destruction from
Japan earthquake, tsunamis”

AND
When using
AND, you only
receive pages
including both
of your search
terms, though
not
necessarily
next to one
another.
How Boolean Works
Kathy Schrock’s Boolean Machine
OR
When using
OR, you
receive pages
containing
either one or
both of your
search terms.

NOT
The NOT
operator is
used to find
pages
including only
the first term
and excluding
the second
term.

Challenge 6
How do we help students recognize
the range of available sources?
How can students identify which
sources will best meet their needs?
When to use
which type of resource?
Students must determine what type of data
might be appropriate for their project.
This is a perfect time to consult with your
school librarian!
Making a Judgment Call:
Utilizing the right resource
A matrix to compare different resources
Lists benefits and strengths of each category
of resources
Offers examples of each category
represented
Discusses major characteristics, availability
and location of resources
Includes a variety (primary to tertiary, print to
web 2.0) to support any research product
Refer to: Making a Judgment Call
Pathfinders
Refer to: Pathfinder Template
Database Wiki
Creating a “Database Wiki” helps educators collect
and share quality websites and databases on
recurring or popular topics chosen by students
Provides examples of quality resources to students
Begin by exploring online databases accessible
through your school library
Also use the list of online databases available
through the Hawaii State Public Library System
List includes descriptions of databases
Database special features
Highlights
special
features in
databases
such as
searching
by lexile
reading
level in
MAS Ultra
Wikispaces
Search and share activity
Revisit your student case study and identify a
topic
Use one of the mentioned search tools (Topic Web,
Wordle, Boolify, etc.) to identify search terms
Search the school and HSPLS online databases or the
web for quality resources, using the search terms
Find at least one resource/database that you think will
be useful for your case study student
Add the resource/database to your subject wiki. Write
a brief annotation noting any special features.
Refer to: Search and Share
How to update the wiki
Select your team’s page from the left menu
Click the “Edit” button on the right side of the
screen
How to update the wiki
Use the template to input the information you
discovered
Subject
Robotics
Title
“A Brief History of Robotics Since 1950” in
Science and Its Times
Accessed through Gale Virtual Reference
Library.

When to use a university library
Student has exhausted the resources of the
school and public library, but still needs
additional information
Mentor asks for specific, supplemental
information
Student needs scientific, medical, or technical
information not found in school and public
libraries
Things to know
about visiting a UH library
Public is welcome to use a UH library
(Manoa, Hilo or Maui)
UH libraries cannot provide direct instruction
and materials must be used in the library
There are few public-access computers
Computer labs are open only to UH students
Things to know continued
Student should have a detailed research plan
before visiting a UH library
Student should identify specific resource he/she
wishes to use
Student should know the type of information/data
he/she needs to find
