Research Prompt
  1. Go to You can search articles right from the search bar there, but I actually think it's better to search in discipline-specific databases, so click "Databases A-Z" under "Research." For communications, I suggest ComIndex Online. For English, I suggest MLA International Bibliography. use the database to start searching for scholarly articles (and scholarly books, too) on your topic. You can take notes on articles you find in whatever way makes sense to you (and you don't need to add these notes to your wiki), but I suggest you at least note:
    1. The author's main arguments
    2. Any key concepts, terms, definitions, or prestige abstractions they seem to use
    3. Some notes on how each source relates to the others—in other words, start orchestrating the conversation that your paper will need to enter into.
