Your goal today is to find resources and then take notes.
Each individual group member needs to keep a list of the sources that you use so that you can create an MLA works cited page to submit. Copy and paste website addresses and/or MLA citations for the sources that you find into a Word Document. Be sure to save this Word document into your network folder so that we can access it during class again tomorrow.
Notes about your sources:
Each individual group member is responsible for finding and using at least 2 credible sources.
At least 1 of these sources needs to come from a library database.
On your index cards that you were required to bring to class today, please take relevant notes to answer your research questions. Be sure to follow the notetaking format we discussed in class.
MLA format for In-text Citations and Works Cited Page
A Works Cited page lists all your sources of information. Each database article has the MLA citation at the bottom of the page; just copy and paste into your works cited Word document.
Websites are harder to cite; a url is not a citation. Use easybib.com or bibme.org for help. Remember that those tools rarely generate a complete citation; you still need to hunt for the information to complete it.
Organize your citations in alphabetical order and don't forget to indent the second line.
