Please place a sticker on your bookmark every time one of the following statements resembles something you have said or thought…….
In the classes I teach, there is rarely enough time to cover everything I think my students should know.
I have tried to have students work in groups, but they seem a bit ….resistant.
I am worried about trying something new when I teach – and having it not work.
I want to reduce the number of blank stares in my classes.
I’m not comfortable with the uncertainty that comes with doing unscriptedinstruction.
I teach large classes of students and am not sure how to incorporate hands-on activities
I want to be more effective in the classroom.
The lecture works for students who “learn auditorially, have high working memory capacity, have all the required prior knowledge, have good note-taking skills, and are not susceptible to information processing overload.”
Johnson, Johnson, and Smith (1991) in John C. Bean. Engaging ideas: the professor’s guide to integrating writing, critical thinking, and active learning in the classroom. P. 89

Many articlesin a databaseare available in full-text though not always. Sometimes you just get the citation. If you are using a databaselike Academic Search Premier and scan your search results you will see the words HTMLand PDF. Clicking on HTML will give you the text version of the article which is sometimes harder to cite. The PDF version looks exactly like the article would when it was originally published,but you will need Adobe Acrobat to view it.
Sometimes the articleis not in full textand you just get thecitation. Sometimes the article is in full-text, but it doesn’t say that on the screen. In some databases associated with OhioLINKyou will see the term Find a Copy. Click on this and you will sometimes go to the linkto full-text. It might say full-textavailable in the EJC. This is the Electronic Journal Center which is another database that is linked to this one.
Sometimes Find a Copy will link to another full-textsource and you might have to click on one link and then another link and then the PDFiconto get the article. Sometimes you will click on Find a Copy and you won’t get a link to thefull-text. The screen will show you the journal holdings. In our online catalog, you will first see holdings for branch campuses. You will want to look for the word Main which is our campus.
You will see a list of the volumes we have received for thatjournal. Sometimes there are gaps where for some reason we stopped getting the journalfor a couple years. Make sure you have the complete citation so you can find thejournalon the second floor where the bound journals are arrangedalphabetically by the title of the journal not the article.
Sometimes it looks like we don’t own thejournal, but we actually do. You will need to do a title search in the online catalog to confirm this. The record for the journal will show you whether we own the journal or not. If we don’t, you can try to get the article through Interlibrary Loan. But that might take a couple weeks…….
