Activity break: Identify search terms

In preparation for your search for articles, take the time now to examine your research question and break it down into search terms. Remember to think of all possible synonyms, related terms, spellings, etc.

You can either record all of the search terms on a piece of paper to use later, or use this interactive exercise from the University of Texas to walk through generating keywords for your search.
