Having read through Bud's post on requiring research papers to have a print source and the many comments about print sources, I realize I have been using outdated terms but up-to-date requirements. For many years I have told students they must use printed material, i.e. a book, journal or other primary source, and their web materials must be clearly cited so I could review the sites for accuracy and content, something they are responsible for in their research. The printed material can be on-line if necessary. My concern, like many of the comments to Bud's post, has always been that the students don't just take the first hits off the web and use them without looking further. I thought by requiring printed material I had a better chance of getting real research. I don't think that is the case now. I think the only way I can get my students to do the required research is by putting a form of accountability in place which will allow me to monitor their searches. I don't know how to do this yet but at less I have an idea about what I need.
