Why can't I find anything?
There are thousands of articles written every month on thousands of topics. The first step is starting in the right place. Do you need a newspaper article or a magazine article? What's the difference? Are they biased? Next, you will need to figure out keywords. Your preliminary research and the Internet can help you figure out good search terms.
What is Full-Text?
Full text means that you will be able to read/view the entire text of the article - not just an index entry or abstract.

- Remember your Audience -- Pay attention to your audience's cues: do they look bored or confused? Are they engaged? Are they understanding what you want them to understand? An activity or interactive handout is a great way to do this.
Technology -- If you are going to use technology, make sure it works and make sure you know how to use it... There is no better way to make your audience bored than making them wait.
