Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Kinard
Most people conduct research every single day without even realizing it. The same skills needed for conducting research during writing are used in less formal situations in our daily lives. For example, to find out the definition of a word, one would look it up in a dictionary. To find out what happened locally yesterday, one would read the newspaper. Research is really just a quest to find specific and accurate information about a given topic. This book is designed to inform readers about the many different types of print sources that are available, including books, newspapers, journals, and magazines. With so much information available, it is important to know what you are looking for, where to find it, and how to evaluate it. What is the difference between a primary and secondary source, and why are both important? What is the difference between a magazine and a journal? Bodden answers these questions and more, showing how print sources can be a valuable tool for effective research. Includes a glossary and a list of websites for further information. Part of the "Research for Writing" series. Reviewer: Heather Kinard
