  • You create a “source card” for each credible source.
  • You understand the basics of the notecard research system.
why notecards
Why notecards?
  • Regular note taking works fine for small essays, arguments, assignments or lectures, but what happens when you have 50 pieces of information? How can you keep track of what fact comes from what source and be able to organize your facts by theme and not source?

Notecard System= Smarter
  • More work at first, MUCH LESS WORK later.
the basics
The Basics
  • Source Card:
    • Every credible source’s information is written on a card in MLA format (including a “hanging indent”)
    • Every source gets its own number

  • Here’s a fact I found in the source from yesterday’s DO NOW example: “Traveling with an emergency weather radio is key to surviving a disaster while on vacation” –Christopher Elliot
  • Draw a box and create a “note card” for this fact. (think about how you can show on the note card what source this piece of evidence comes from

  • Tomorrow we will have an expert help you find info about your topic. For your Do Now for today, respond to the following:
  • 1. Create a couple of possible questions to ask the librarian. (I would ask for “key word” help. Aka what to type in the search box. Or any other issue you might have.
  • 2. Today is a research day. Create an observable goal that you want to accomplish before the end of class.

If we can work quietly and independently, I can come around and give “work smarter” tips to individuals
