Instructions for today's activity:
You'll be put into groups of 2 or 3. Pick a topic that you are interested in. It can be something in your major, something you're interested outside of your coursework, something silly...it doesn't matter! This is practice.
Look through the questions on page 2 of the worksheet and talk through them, out loud, with the other members of your group. Yes, out loud! "Thinking out loud" is a great way to improve your metacognition skills.
After you've talked through the first 3 questions, think of 2 or 3 keywords or phrases related to your topic, then do some quick searches in some of the databases we looked at. What did you learn that you didn't already know? Talk about it with your group.
When we're done, I'll ask one person from each group to share one thing they learned from this exercise.
