The boxes below will help you:
After selecting your disposition, you'll need to brainstorm possible keywords for your search.
Read over your chosen disposition and think critically about the types of research that may relate to it. It may be helpful to go back to the Dispositions document in the assignment area of your course. Look at the subareas for the disposition and identify key terms that may have been used in Education research studies. These terms can be used for keyword searches in the library databases.
The concepts used in the dispositions are very broad, so you will need to brainstorm the specific focus you want to take to defend your choice of disposition.
Here is an example of a disposition and possible keywords:
Disposition 2: The educator understands how students learn and develop and can provide a variety of learning opportunities adapted to diverse learners that support all students' intellectual, social, and personal development.
The keywords you select will depend on the specific focus you want to take when you defend your choice of disposition.
The next step is to use your keywords to build a search within a library database. While each database has a unique collection, and may look slightly different, these general steps will work in every library database.
Below is an example search using the keywords provided in the box above.
