I am asking for a presentation for my English 101 students on how to locate research on a topic of their own choosing, but the topic will be restricted to a current event / issue. They will be composing a persuasive essay research paper.When it comes to choice of research, I would like my students to be able to locate (at minimum): 1 periodical, 1 newspaper, 1 multimedia, 1 professional website, and one of these sources must represent an opposing view to whatever argument they intend to make in their persuasive essays.To aid with the tutorial, students will have chosent topics and have composed a thesis statement by the day of the tutorial, that way students will be able to practice using library databases right away for researching their topic.
