  31. There’s so much trash out there.

  32. Let’s try to find the treasures. Journal entry #4: You’ll get a handout with printed pages from the Internet. Decide which sources (A-F) are most academic. Rank them in your notes the order you would use them for research. Write one sentence to explain. Example: 1. Source C is most academic –it’s written by a history professor and includes a works cited list. …..then do 2-5….. 6. Source A is least academic –it’s just advertising and has no real info.
