How do I: Do Background Reading
This guide covers Information, Media, and Digital Literacy concepts and Digital Citizenship for Gr. 9-12 students, as well as teacher and parents.
Background reading provides you with an overview of a topic. Begin your research by doing background reading - this will help you discover the scope of your subject. If the your initial topic appears very large may wish to narrow your research to a specific issue. Alternatively, if there appears to be little information on your initial topic, you may wish to broaden your research.
Use your background reading to identify keywords for your search.
