I would suggest that you begin with the Research Guide for Educational Administration, Counseling, and Teacher Education.  To get there:

If you are not sure which database to use, then I would suggest that you use one of the Research Guides (link listed on the web page:  http://www.fhsu.edu/library , then click on Research Guide line under the section:  Find Resources and books.  Next scroll down to the discipline guide that best represents the discipline you are researching.  From the title of the article I sent, I would suggest:  Educational Administration, Counseling, and Teacher Education.  Click on the guide.  Once in the guide, on the left will be a tab for “Articles and databases”, click on it.  On that page, there will be a box for “best databases” for that discipline.  They are all hot linked and should take you directly to the database so you can search.

Some possible key terms would be:  "reading comprehension" - I would put it in quotes to keep the words together - at least to start,  you might have to break them up in separate boxes in case there are not enough results.  Other terms such as:  abbreviations, initials and acronyms and texting.  Again, I would put them in separate boxes.  Might have to just do one or two (too many words and you reduce the number of hits you receive.  (i.e.  "reading comprehension"  AND  "texting"     /   "reading comprehension" AND abbreviations

If you locate articles and they have full text listed and you cannot download the article, please let us know and we can try and download it and send it to you via email.  If you locate articles that DO NOT have full text, then you can request the articles via our Interlibrary Loan service at:  http://www.fhsu.edu/library/ill  If  you have not used the service, you will have to go in and "create an account" as a new user, then do a new request for and article.  Once the article is received by us, you will receive an email telling you to go to your account to access your electronically received article.

Hope this helps,
