  2. Read the Wikipedia page (pre-research) on your independent variable, and write down keywords.  Save any quality sources you find from Wikipedia being sure to put them through the CRAAP test.
  3. Take a look at the librarian-recommended articles on the blackworm and independant variable pages, and save any you find helpful.
  4. If needed, search the research databases and Google further, evaluate your sources, save everything to your Scrible library.
  5. Read and annotate your information.  Add more articles if you realize you don't have enough.
