Thursday, Jan. 18th

We had a few minutes to find a source for your INVESTIGATIVE REPORT.  We then went over how to write an ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY.  Each group should create a google doc, and each member should post THREE ENTRIES on this annotated bibliography.  The citations should be in the MLA FORMAT, with a hanging indent. Then write a brief annotation:

  1. briefly summarizing the content of the source
  2. assessing the CREDIBILITY (by applying the R.A.V.E.N., C.R.A.A.P. test to it)
  3. applying the source to your investigative report

This is due when we read Part III chapter 6.

MLA FORMAT 

Next class you will answering aloud the questions the class generated on Part II 7-8, using the new vocabulary.  Here are the questions:

Class Questions

After going over some new vocabulary, we discussed the INVESTIGATIVE REPORT your team will be presenting at the end of the unit.  You will be explaining an issue raised in the novel and proving that it is an issue in the real world.  You must provide reliable proof in the form of articles, videos, photos, interviews, etc., and these must be cited in a BIBLIOGRAPHY using the MLA FORMAT.
