Big Idea

Essential Question: How does a researcher select which information sources to use?  How does a researcher evaluate those sources for reliability?

You will be expanding your knowledge of the world by learning about another country.  We will use the 5 themes of Geography as our guide for taking notes.  You are to gather information from the various resources in the library (books, research apps, web links).

Remember as you research:

  • How is the resource (book, app, or site) organized?
  • Does the resource include a list of contents?  An index?
  • What key terms are associated with the info I'm looking for?
