As You Gather Information...

  • Does this information answer your original questions?
  • Do you need to revise and redefine your questions?

2. Don't forget to cite your sources as you research.

  • Record titles, authors, publishers, dates and other relevant information for citation purposes.
  • If you are using a website, also record the URL (web address) and the date you visited the site. 

3. Time to get busy!

  • Evaluate the content of your sources. Be a good detective!
  • Take notes.
