Presentation Transcript

  1. Benchmark • Add BENCHMARK to April 3 on the calendar. • Similar to the midterm, it will assess your knowledge of American Literature to this point. It should give us a good idea of how well (or poorly) you will do on the SEOCT.

  2. Galileo Take notes on your own paper.

  3. What is Galileo? • Galileo is a database where you can access periodicals and scholarly journals.

  4. Why is it better that Google? • Anyone can post anything on the internet. We know this to be true. Wikipedia allows users to edit information—but it cannot guarantee that the information is reliable. • Galileo only offers scholarly (and peer-reviewed) articles to provide accurate, reliable information.

  5. How do I use Galileo? • The easiest way to get to Galileo is to Google search it. If you spell it correctly, it will be the first link listed. • It reads-"Galileo-University System of Georgia."
