Now we will search some databases and share our results. Below, please type your name, your topic/research question, your assigned database (Academic Search Complete, QuickSearch, or JSTOR), and the keywords you used that gave you the best results.


Keep in mind that finding helpful keywords to search is more of an art than a science, and you might need to try many different search terms before you find relevant results. However, it's usually best to start as simply as possible (so no more than 2-3 words to start).

Be prepared to discuss your results. Did you find a relevant article? If so, please share the link.
