Pre-Research

When selecting a topic you can explore with these general resources.

Wikipedia

Google

You cannot cite these resources but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get a valuable overview of your topic.

You can also go directly to go to our catalog.  http://umc.breckschool.org/#_

Go straight to the shelves to browse many health topics can be found in this Dewey section 616.      616

 

Slideshare

Slideshare is a collection of presentations including Powerpoint, Open Office and PDF book formats. For example, see this pdf book on Addiction.  This looks promising for the few topics I checked. Try it!

Twitter Feed

Health topics are current news, and you can find resources streaming through Twitter feeds. Here's how. 

  1. Go to http://search.twitter.com/
  2. Search for keywords with and without the # sign.    Example:  relaxation  #relaxation (this is a hashtag)
  3. Look for tweets that include a shortened link to another site (often a bit.ly link).

A Twitter hashtag = #keyword

@name = Twitter screen name for an individual tweet stream
