Keyword searches
Usually this search is the broadest as it will pick up even minor mentions of your topic.

Break your topic into its most unique words and phrases. If you use phrases, type quotes around it to search for the words in the right order. Capitalization doesn’t matter but be sure of your spelling. Also look for synonyms and alternate phrases to describe what you’re looking for:

  • “College Readiness”, “College Preparedness”
  • “Learning Standards”
  • “Learning Strategies”

Combine keywords with AND to narrow your search: testing AND stress Combine keywords with OR to broaden your search: “high stakes testing” OR “standardized tests”
