Learning Targets

I can locate information on my topic using library databases and high quality websites for my quarter paper and project.

If necessary, I can cite sources properly in Chicago/Turabian format.

I can create a captivating Visual Closure Project..

Databases vs. Websites

Databases : Authoritative Content from Respected Sources

  • Paid for by the library. (Think of them as premium cable channels.)
  • Cannot be easily searched in Google.
  • Includes sources written by professors, scholars, journalists, etc.
  • Authority of information is verified by editors and publishers.

Websites : Onus Is on You to Verify the Content  

  • Access is free. No one is paying for the content.
  • Anyone can publish a website. The information included is often not verified by anyone.
  • Must examine with a critical eye. You need to spend time determining if content is correct.

What about this one? It really works!
