Are you using the advance search interface?  Or are you using symbols.  The symbol for not is a negative sign in front of the search term…the advance search interface does a really good job of the same thing.

Subject: [ISLMA-Share] Boolean Search Help

Hi all,

I am doing some Google News tips and Boolean searching strategies with a high school Current History class tomorrow. They have been researching DACA, North Korea, and the Rohingya crisis as a class, so I'm hoping to tie into what they already know. I'm having trouble coming up with a good example for using the NOT Boolean search strategy. Can anyone give me a good example using one of those topics to try?
