Week 5
Questions on the lit review
What are the keywords you are using to find information? What disciplines are you searching in for your sources?
Who are what sources disagree with your perspective?
What controversies did you find in the 'literature'? How did this change your focus?
Information seeking - how did it go? Did you find a broad enough range of sources to cover the topic? Was your search narrow enough to exclude irrelevant material?

Week 4
So, Last week we discovered a huge gap in the research process. The significance of the "working knowledge" became more critical to refining your research question. This week (2/14) we need to gain serious control of our topic, working knowledge, our handle on the research model, and a really good question. Your Annotated Bibs are due this week please use OWL to figure out what you need.
