In this workshop, you'll learn all the skills you need to research non-fiction, look up information for your next novel, and even how to find the truth behind a suspicious social media post.
In this primer on researching, we'll cover: beyond the Google search: Google Books and Ngram viewer, how to find primary sources and when to trust secondary sources. how to access academic articles and scientific studies (and why you should), how to research historical figures using Ancestry.com and newspaper databases, when you need to go to the library/archive (and when you don’t), and the importance of research experiences—go touch a thing, see a thing, and do a thing.
We'll practice analyzing sources throughout class and there will be plenty of time for Q&A! Sponsored by Loganberry Books.
