We're happy to help with this.
Try searching like this:
- In the first box: "interest driven"
- In the second box: instruction
You will find additional results by searching with synonyms in other searches. For example, try "interest based" in the first box and curriculum in the second box. To combine all of these options into one search, try this:
- In the first box: "interest driven" OR "interest based"
- In the second box: instruction OR curriculum
The best search tools to use for this topic are Search@CULibraries and ERIC. You can find both search tools here: http://libguides.cu-portland.edu/medonline/primary/where.
For peer reviewed articles, you'll want to be sure to check a box or click on a link for peer reviewed articles. Not all article results in the search tools will be peer reviewed, so you'll need to filter the results so they are all peer reviewed. We have a quick video demonstration of how to do this.
For tips for finding primary research articles, see this page: http://libguides.cu-portland.edu/medonline/primary/how. You'll see that in some searches, it can be helpful to add in another keyword like study to identify primary research articles in the results.
