Abstract
Description
Using the university-wide common reading book, Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?, we jump start the research process with first year students from the moment they step onto campus with an 8 minute orientation activity. In a small group, highly interactive process, students explore current controversial scenarios and are challenged to make informed and reasonable judgments based on evidence and observation. The goal: capture their natural curiosity and get them excited about research, information, discovery, and evaluation.
