In two to three sentences, respond to each question. To develop your responses, combine your experience
deploying search terms to locate the three primary sources in this learning block with your own reflections
on the questions posed. Regardless of whether or not you were able to find all three sources, complete all
question prompts before you submit your responses. It is especially helpful for your instructor to know what
search terms you did use if you weren’t able to find the primary sources so that they can provide you with
the feedback you need to develop effective search terms.
