RESEARCH Mini-Project


Use at least two different sources (books, articles, interview, Internet, video...) and answer the questions below.

1- In my research, I wanted to find out about

2- I used the following sources (your sources must be written down in correct bibliographic form - the bibliography counts!! - see below for bibliographic information)

3- Describe what you learned. Besides basic facts, remember to include at least three things that you learned that you think are really interesting and why you found that information interesting:

4- Part of learning about things is thinking of questions that you want answered so you can learn more. What questions did your research bring up for you?


The most common problem is an incomplete or incorrectly formatted bibliography. Being able to write a correct bibliography is an important skill for well educated people to have, so I am making it important toward your grade in our work. Check the bibliography page for exact formats for each type of source (book, encyclopedia, Internet), but generally the book format runs (note strange punctuation!):

Author (last, first - for first listing). Title. Place of Publication: Publisher,    Copyright date. Page number used.

If your source is from the Internet, include at least, the title of the page and its address (http://www. -etc.). Also look for who wrote or maintains the site & a date.

If you use two Internet sources, be sure that the addresses don't begin with the same address - then they are part of the same site, but different pages within that site.

Check the timeline for timeline bibliography info.
