The 3 P's: Population, Place, Problem

This is a fun, hands-on activity that can help with brainstorming a topic and/or reserach question. Can also function as an ice-breaker! The results can be informative...and also sometimes entertaining!On the slip of paper (attachment), students write their name and a Population that they'd like to focus on. then they hand it off to another student, who fills in a Place. They then hand it off to a third student, who fills in a Problem. Finally, the slip is returned to its original owner who must formulate a research question based on those three pieces of information.

Putting S.I.F.T. To Work

This Worksheet is based on Mike Caulfield’s S.I.F.T. Method. Students will first need to have a familiarity with that. I highly recommend the “S.I.F.T. For Teachers” video playlist on his YouTube channel and/or his website.This activity would probably take most of a class period. Could also be done online via a Discussion.

Think-Pair-Share Worksheet for Search Terms and Strategies

This think-pair-share activity worksheet allows students to apply search terms to their own research topic and can be used after a class discussion or class lecture on library and database searching. First, students think on their own about potential search terms for their own topic. Then, they pair up and discuss how they thought of those terms and how they might use Boolean operators to connect those terms. Lastly, the pairs share with the class about what they talked about in their pairs. This resource is suitable for in-person and synchronous online instruction and takes about 10 minutes for students to complete the entire think-pair-share process.
