Reflect on your Research Process (Habit of Mind: Metacognition)
Write a reflection in which you discuss your research process and evolution. Questions to consider as you compose this reflection:
- What are the differing perspectives represented in your research? (For example: Federalists, Anti-Federalists, etc.)
- What article, or part of an article, was the most interesting to you? What fascinating information did you learn?
- What were the challenges you faced during this research process? How did you overcome these challenges?
- What steps did you follow to find your information?
- How has your view of American History changed as result of your research? (Here think about your research topic! It's a part of American History)
In addition to answering these questions, I would like you to work with 2 of the 6 frames from the Framework for Information Literacy: Authority is Constructed!'
Please reflect on how this frame has impacted your research process and thinking about information literacy by selecting 2 Knowledge Practices and 2 Dispositions from each Frame. Please use the ideas in the framework to make connections to the following:
- Your Research Process
- The wider world outside the walls of the classroom and academia and information needs in the 21st century
Here is the link for the frame:
Follow MLA conventions in formatting your essay.
This reflection should be 3 to 4 pages long.
