This is an interesting topic. I would suggest that you begin by going to the education libguide at libguides.brenau.edu/education. Use the tabs at the top of the page to navigate to the articles page. You will see a list of databases that we recommend that you use to do research on education topics.
I chose to go into the first database, Academic Search Complete. You will be asked to enter your student ID number and the first part of your student email address - everything before the @tiger.brenau.edu.
Once you are in the database, if your professor has specifically asked for only scholarly resources, go ahead and limit your search to scholarly results by clicking on this box below the search bar and to the left of your screen. You may also want to limit your results to full text only so that you can be sure that you will have access to the full text of all of the articles in your results.
Next, enter your search terms. I chose the search terms Teacher Pay AND Student Performance and I got some good results. Don't forget to use the word AND to connect your search terms in the database.
