A Curriculum Guide for Online Database Searching with High School Students.
This curriculum guide is intended to help educators design strategies to introduce the concept of online database searching to high school students. The goals of database searching are clearly defined so they may be matched with the goals already established in existing curriculum areas. The teaching process involves explaining how to use a computer to locate bibliographic references. By using a computer to search the databases, students learn how the bibliographic records are organized and what the organizational structure means for successful retrieval. This guide contains statements of the purpose, philosophy, rationale, goals, and objectives of teaching online searching skills to high school students. Included are: an outline of the steps in the search process, activities for four class periods, a student worksheet to be completed with every search request, a discussion of search strategy development, two sample searches and information on computer database vendors and search packages. Referenced used in preparing the curriculum guide are included. (THC)
