  1. Below is my standard "lesson" on how to search for information, on and off the Internet. Be sure to go into the links indicated and learn how to formulate good search terms. And remember that if the search terms you choose don't give you the information you want, alter the search terms!

    And don't forget the reference librarian -- those people are remarkably intelligent about how to coax out sometimes obscure information from a wide variety of sources.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    You may have to search and research, but once you learn some good sources and methods, you should have success. In addition to searching on the Internet, you also need to make best friends with the reference librarian(s) in your local or college library. Libraries these days subscribe to enormous research databases, and they are often more useful than Internet searches. Ask your librarian if you have access to EBSCOHost -- it has several databases within it, including a huge one for academic research.

    For Internet searching:

    At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.

    My favorite way to search is to go to Google's advanced search page http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en and put my search words or phrases into the first or second search box (either "all the words" or "exact phrase"). Another is to start out at http://scholar.google.com. However, there many other strategies for searching you can use, and the HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET section will help you best.

    Learning to use Google or other search engines can save you time and help you learn to find information efficiently. Here are some websites that can teach you how:

  2. And there is a thinking problem here:

    How does a theoretical perspective view anything? Then following, apparently theoretical perspectives do thinking.

    One has to be careful with ones words, as words are the cutting edge of how we think, and how we look for additional information, and finally, how we use it.

    If we can't say what we mean, we can never mean what we say. In essays, that is a fatal flaw.
