Note:  The ENG 2100 guide (linked in the left colum) is a great resource to use in tandem with this ENG 2110 guide.  It provides a step-by-step process for identifying a research question, finding information (the scholarly conversation that's taking place about that topic or question), evaluating information and using and citing the research you find.

Ongoing Scholarly Conversations

Scholars often communicate with their peers through writing in a number of kinds of publications.  They also collaborate with each other.  For Example, Sharon L. Nichols and David C. Berliner have written together a number of times.

This article appeared in a trade publication:

Nichols, S. L., & Berliner, D. C. (2008). Why Has High-Stakes Testing So Easily Slipped into Contemporary American Life?. Education Digest, 74(4), 41-47.

This article appeared in a scholarly journal:

Nichols, S. L., Glass, G. V., & Berliner, D. C. (2006). High-Stakes Testing and Student Achievement: Does Accountability Pressure Increase Student Learning?. Education Policy Analysis Archives, 14(1), 1-172.

They also wrote a book together!

Nichols, S. L., & Berliner, D. C. (2007). Collateral damage: How high-stakes testing corrupts America's schools. Cambridge, Mass: Harvard Education Press.


Can you notice a different writing style in the trade publication than in the scholarly journal?  How is their tone similar or different?
