Today the Go-Girls ventured out to the Undergraduate Library. When they arrived they were split up into their groups, but all learned the same information. The first presenter started off by asking a few questions about their knowledge in PowerPoint and later gave feedback. They were then all sent a PowerPoint by using their knowledge in how PowerPoint’s should actually look.
The next presenter talked about citing information, adding graphics, and taught them how to evaluate websites. She gave them a list of things they should look for when evaluating and telling whether the site is legitimate or not. This list includes: accuracy, currency, relevancy, authority, being biased or not, domains, and advertising. After learning the ins and outs of websites they were all given a website to see if it was real or fake.
To end off the day at the library their last presenter talked about a website called Mel.org (Michigan e Library) where many data bases are. These data bases are there so you can research on basically any topic. The data bases bring up articles, sites, and more.

Go-Girls –Saturday, February 4th, 2012
As the girls arrived to the College of Education on the campus of Wayne State many activities were coming their way. To get to know each other they broke up into their assigned groups and began to discuss what they like. To find this information out they compared characteristics such as what they wear, hair color, eye color, hobbies, favorite foods, color, subjects, and more. The girls then went over Classroom Rules so that all activities can go as accordingly.
Using the Venn-Diagram method and Bar Graphs they analyzed data dealing with texting, cellular devices, favorite food, favorite music genre, sports, whether or not they would be watching the Super Bowl and more. After the analyzing data was complete the girls stayed in the groups they were in the beginning and came up with group names and a group cheer they would perform at the graduation ceremony.
As lunch approached the girls headed towards the Student Center to eat Subway in a large group. After lunch the girls completed an online survey about how their experiences so far at Wayne State is going.
“I think this program is a great program for girls. Especially since it is on Saturdays and most girls don’t have anything to do. You can definitely learn something,” said Group 3 member Kaila Searcy.
