As you progress through your mission, it is important to record and connect the information you find. To do this, create a mind map using PowerPoint. Each Tactical Unit must create a mind map that will be used for your unit's presentation to the class. The easiest way to build your mind map is to click on "Insert" and then "Shapes" to add shapes and arrows. Below is a short video if you need help. You can also ask the librarians for assistance.
At the end of the mission (once you finish Operation #5), email your mind map to your QS 111 instructor. You must include in the email all the names of the people in your Tactical Unit.
Use the library's catalog to find a print book about how Romans planned cities
1. the search terms and limiters you used to find the item
2. citation information (for a book you will need the author, title, publisher, place of publication, and year of publication for a basic citation)
3. call number for the item
4. the picture of the book cover
5. list facts did you found
Go back to the library catalog and find an e-book with more information about Roman city planning or architecture. Add to your mind map:
1. the citation for the book (you can get the basic information from the citation function)
2. what else did you discover about Roman cities
Using the information you found in operations 2 &3, search one of the library's databases to find more information. Add to this to your mind map:
1. the citation for the article (you can get the basic information from the database's citation function)
2. list at least one piece of information you found interesting
3. if you can find it in the database, a picture of the stepson or the family
4. the search statement you used to find the article or book (search terms, Boolean operators fields, and limiters)
You now should have a complete mind map. Review the mind map to make sure the links between your information make sense.If needed, reorganize your mind map. You can add color and images to your mind map. Images can be found by searching the databases. Encyclopedia Britannica and Academic Search Premier are two databases that may have images you can use. Also, check your citations to make sure they are correct. Remember, you did not get help from an online tool with the citation for Operation #2. .A good resource to use for checking citations is the Purdue's Online Writing Lab. The goal in Operation #5 is to make your mind map look great.
