There are several education databases that you can use to find peer-reviewed journal articles and there is a trick you can use to search multiple databases as once (see below).
Go to the HGTC Library website, click on the Databases tab, then on A-Z Databases. Select ERIC from the list of databases. Once you are in ERIC, you will see a search box. Right above the search box is a link that says "Choose Databases." Clicking this will bring up a list of all the databases by this company (EBSCO). Select the following from that list and then click OK: ERIC, Education Full Text, and Teacher Reference Center.
The next step is choosing the correct search terms. For example, you could try a basic search for the phrase moral development. You could be more specific and combine search terms together. For example, you could search for moral development AND Kohlberg.
Finally, to the left of the results list you will see a box that says "Refine Results." In it is a check box labeled Scholarly (Peer-Reviewed) Articles. Check this box to narrow your results to only those that are peer-reviewed.
