This Course Guide will help Dave's students research and write an informal "review of literature" on a subject about which they are passionate.

Keyword brainstorming

Also, rather than using a short news article or stated facts, look for information that delves into your topic and makes you think. Certain keywords can help you find those meatier pieces of writing. Try searching with keywords like:

  • purpose
  • analysis OR "analysis of"
  • "future of"
  • justification OR "justification for"
  • predictions
  • reflections
  • exploration
  • "portrayal of"
  • "as symbol" OR "symbolism of"
  • "psychology of"
  • philosophy

Try out the Google like a librarian search tips on the next page to really up your online searching game.
