Answer:

Did your teacher give you any limitations, or specific types of materials to source (i.e. books, encyclopedias, magazines, etc.?) Do you have online access to your school or public library? We can start there, with a simple subject search. what is your library's url (website address)? [here I would guide the student to an online library catalog and do a keyword subject search, and duplicate it on my end] You should be seeing a list of materials available on climate change. [let's say the student needs 3 books and 2 journal articles] Let's look at the following titles. [bk 1, bk 2, bk 3] We can use the information in the item records for your first three citations. [follow through with this] Now let's look at the online resources available at your library. If you look at this page, scroll to this spot, you will see whatever database. We can do the same type of subject search in this journal database. [guide student through the database] See the results list? It is a list of articles on climate change. Let's look at the titles and read the summaries. Let's select 2, and you can access the full article by selecting it. The citation information is available by clicking the citation tool in the database.

Question:

What is onomatopoeia? Can you give me some examples of how it can be used?

Inactive
Alexa N.
Answer:

Words that describe a sound by actually making (spelling out) the sound are called onomatopoeia. It is used to make language more descriptive. Think of a old car. We often call them "clunkers" because of the noises they make: clunk, rattle, ping, chug. Sounds like boom, hiss, ka-pow, boing, thwap are also examples of onomatopoeia.
