Big Six Information Research Strategy     
We use the Big Six Information Research Strategy whenever classes are assigned a research project. The following are the steps involved in this method:
  1. Task Definition (What are you supposed to do? Brainstorm key words. Prepare questions.)
  2. Information Seeking Strategies (What are you going to look for?)
  3. Location and Access (What sources will have the information you are looking for? ex.: books, etc.)
  4. Use of Information (Take notes on useful information)
  5. Synthesis (Organize information from multiple sources.)
  6. Evaluation (Judge the result and the process.)
