Exercising Authority

posted: 2.21.07 by Barclay Barrios

One of the goals of many research projects is to have students write with authority and confidence. Have them practice this skill by first reviewing the materials on research in the handbook. Then, in class, ask them to locate a subject they are already an expert in—a video game, a TV show, a sport—and then list three to five sources (of any sort) they would refer someone to who wanted to learn about that topic. Use this to open a class discussion about the kinds of authority they should achieve through research.
