The “Academic Research Made Easy” PowerPoint has been added to the handouts tab under General Research Resources.
This PowerPoint suggests useful research strategies for a student writing a paper. There is information on narrowing a topic into a research question, on constructing a thesis statement, and on where to find good sources for every step of the way. Also included are general tips such as creating an outline and looking up synonyms to help you in your searching. TIP: When printing, choose “Handouts” under “Print What” and choose 3 slides per page. This will give you room to write notes for each slide.
