[Third Meeting]

Objectives:
Use online search engines.
Develop a familiarity with library research tools.
Create personalized virtual spaces.

Classwork:
Dr. Valenza will meet with us and instruct us with search engines, iGoogle and EduBlogs. I will create an iGoogle page and EduBlog. I am then to e-mail the address of my Blog to Mr. Alexander.
Next, I have to create a section in my blog entitled Assignments, where I will upload each of my previous homework assignments.

Since I have been introduced to academic search engines, resource acquisition vehicles, iGoogle and EduBlogs; I am able to do a more thorough search. After executing a more thorough search, I am to refine the prompt: Identify the problem/conflict that I would care to investigate, for each of the five courses I have selected.
On the Word document, Topic Selection: College Courses 2, I am to change the color of the prompt to the color red.

Prioritize the top two topics/courses on which I have worked by coloring them orange in the Word document, Topic Selection: College Courses 3.
