Group Activity

1. In your small group, Click on the tab for the Case that is assigned to your group.You will see a box with questions that are specific to your group.

2. Working as a group (divide the tasks as you see fit)

  • Use the resource(s) specified for your group
  • Find the information detailed in the activities for your group
  • You don't need to provide the answer, only HOW you found the information
  • Use the categories developed in the mind mapping exercise to evaluate this resource
  • Prepare the presentation as a group; you will have seven minutes total to present
  • You will have 20 minutes to prepare 

3.  Feel free to use  PowerPoint help you organize the presentation if you wish, but you MUST demonstrate the resource as part of your presentation!  You can use the links provided on the Practicum A Resources tab to quickly get to these resources.


Please limit your presentation to seven minutes so we don't go over the two hours

  • Please report on the following:
    • Demonstrate the search strategy/strategies for the resource(s) you used
    • Comment on the scope, completeness, and ease of use of the resource(s)
