There is two parts to this assignment.
You will select one of the topics covered in the Fall term of Fundamentals of learning and do a search for related information that speaks to the topic you have selected. The topic I chose is Mental Toughness.
Your search should contain a minimum of three “popular” information sources (such as items found through Google, Wikipedia, or other online source) and three “scholarly” resources (identified through a search of the York University library system.)
Your write-up of the research must include the following:
(a) a statement of why you chose to write about the specific “big idea”;
(b) correct citations for both your popular and scholarly sources with page numbers;
(c) a summary of the central idea or thesis of each item you found;
(d) a short analysis of what your sources say about the topic you are researching; and
(e) a reflection on which source gave you the most useful information and why you think so.
Note: Be sure to indicate briefly, which is your popular source and which is your scholarly source, and why.
