Learning How to Use Google Book Search

Today we will be learning how to use Google Book Search. I am teaching you how to use this because it’s a valuable tool for finding WHERE INFORMATION IS LOCATED. However, Google Book Search won’t tell you much more than that. NEVER try to use Google Book Search to replace ACTUAL READING.

Answer the following steps in an email to devin@ucla.edu. You may work with a partner. Please list both your name and your partner’s name in the email (if you both want credit).

  1. Go to Google Book Search
  2. List two titles from publications located on the Google Book Search homepage.
  3. Find the 2004 edition of Animal Farm by George Orwell.
  4. What is the one sentence “maxim” that Snowball determines should act as a commandment?
  5. On what page is this “maxim” first located?
  6. Find the title of one non-fiction book written by Toni Morrison.
  7. According to Augusto Boal in “Theater of the Oppressed”, who should have opposed Macbeth?
  8. What information does Google Books have about “Devin Ozdogu”? (P.S. I’m so egotistical!!!)
  9. Search “The Slave Community” by John W. Blassingame.
  10. What does Blassingame have to say about “slaves who escaped”?
  11. How is this search of Blassingame’s book different from your search of “Theater of the Oppressed”?
  12. Below the snippets of Blassingame’s book that you have searched, click on “Where’s the rest of this book?“.
  13. Summarize the explanation why you can’t read the entire book online.
  14. Write a three sentence explanation of what you CAN learn from Google Book Search and what you CAN’T learn from Google Book Search.

Monday (10-27-08)

Today we…

  • Continued drafting our personal statements.
  • Remember, you are writing a response to the first UC personal statement question: Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.
  • After you are done typing up the descriptive introductory paragraph we wrote last week, start typing up the rest of your personal essay.
  • Remember, if you are actually applying to a UC, your essay should be around 500-800 words (so you have left over words for the second question).
