The Research Project -- Goals for Today

We need to have a discussion about Information Literacy Framework

  • Scholarship as Conversation
    • Communities of scholars, researchers, or professionals engage in sustained discourse with new insights and discoveries occurring over time as a result of varied perspectives and interpretations.
  • Research as Inquiry
    • Research is iterative and depends upon asking increasingly complex or new questions whose answers in turn develop additional questions or lines of inquiry in any field.
  • Each group member should identify one avenue of inquiry to pursue for each piece of music that you have been assigned. Begin by creating a research question. Consult CREDO Reference to get some information about this topic. [Here is how to get to CREDO reference and how to get the citation.]
    • Write about what you learned from your research about your musical pieces and provide citation in APA from each of the articles. Think about how your research process involves asking questions, seeking answers, reading, asking more questions in a circular fashion. Add this information to your group's Google doc -- Google Docs for Groups in All 3 Classes.
