I revised the way I teach this session for the Advertising & PR class.
The students' question/problem=any topic related to (advertising or PR) and GVSU.
Which search engines will give the best results? Are any better than Google or Google Scholar? Set up a blog (in BlackBoard) for students to fill in answers to the questions on worksheet below.
1. Evaluate each website according to Virginia Tech's criteria[http://www.lib.vt.edu/instruct/evaluate/(open each link in a new tab; work with others sitting at your table; write thoughts under each site below)
a. SolarBotanic :[http://www.solarbotanic.com/ - artificial trees]
b. Honeywell Wind Turbinehttp://www.earthtronics.com/honeywell.aspx – GVSU Engineering students developed this]
2. Use a search engine [http://libguides.gvsu.edu/content.php?pid=65643&sid=484921#1493450] other than Google to search for wind turbines and colleges or universities.
Compare results with your neighbors.
