Welcome to the RSOC 64 Research Module!
In this module you'll work through three exercises that will prepare you to complete your upcoming assignments. By working through the activities you will be able to:
Get out a piece of paper and a pen. Think about the different environmental issues you are individually or collectively considering in class. Specifically reflect on and jot down the following:
Use the Google Form above to start Exercise 2.
Exercise 2 asks you to explore and identify 1-2 other potential organizations using the Suggested Sources page in this Guide. The Yale Forum on Ecology and Religion is a particularly valuable resource. List 1-2 other groups of possible interest.
Now you have a few organizations under consideration and some various environmental issues, you'll continue to refine and converge upon one direction. You'll do so by pre-reading in those topics. This exercise will support your pre-reading through strategic searching in targeted library databases.
Specifically, in Exercise 3 you will construct a multi-disciplinary search using EBSCO databases. You will need to watch Video 1 (7 mins) under "Videos for Activities" and then you will be able to apply the techniques to your own search in Exercise 3.
