SPED 6308 -- Dr. Vickie Mitchell or Dr. Corinna Cole
This guide is intended for use in SPED 6308, Practicum and Methods in Special Education, taught by Dr. Mitchell or Dr. Cole. Below you will find some key databases and additional resources students may find useful for their coursework.
For additional assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. That's why I'm here! You can find me in person at SHSU - The Woodlands Center, or you can contact me via phone, e-mail, or the chat box on the right. My hours and e-mail address are listed beneath my picture on the right. Thanks!
Please note: This guide is not exhaustive and is only intended to help students get started in their research. Also, this guide was originally created for Fall 2018's SPED 6308 taught by Dr. Mitchell or Dr. Cole. Although the guide should prove useful for other SPED 6308 courses, this is not its original intention.
You can see all of our Education databases by visiting our Education Databases page.
You can search some of the more common Education databases directly below (including those I covered in class plus a couple more).
You will be expected to utilize the APA citation styles as you complete your coursework. For introductory information and examples, please view our APA Citations guide.
Also, please note that although there is not an online full-text version of the official APA guide, Newton Gresham Library and SHSU-The Woodlands Center have copies that you can use. Also, the APA has published an APA Style Guide to Electronic References that can be accessed online. This guide will provide you all the information you need when citing electronic information.
Take advantage of our Interlibrary Services to get your hands on virtually any article or book you need for your research, even if our library does not have access. Please check out the Interlibrary Services page for more information.
