Firstly, a quick note on the Library website; I never knew about the Assignment Planner. I think that is an awesome resource that I will be using for the rest of my time here at Wayne!
As far as articles go for my research, I found helpful articles for my I-Search paper right away on my first search. When I write a paper, I usually tend to find two different flavors to the topic. Although I may not state two different viewpoints in the paper, I like to read opposing texts to generate ideas for questions or inspirations for my topic. In easier terms, I am researching how planning and goal setting is important as a manager in the work place. One of the articles I found was disputing the idea of setting long term goals for the business. All of my past experience and research has proved the opposite. Even though the article I found that doesn’t support long-term goals for management, it can provide some awesome counter arguments and help me pose questions to continue on my own research path. I think it is critical to keep an open mind and an open eye for a variety of viewpoints and be able to use both towards your writing. That is what helps develop a writer and sharpen analyzing skills.
