The Power of RESEARCH!

If you missed class on Thursday, we spent the majority of our time in the library researching the particular characters that were assigned to you on Tuesday! If you were not in class, then you need to make sure you have the following for Monday.

1. The information you are going to use for your web site must be written down on one piece of paper. The students that were present on Thursday, were given an "outline" of how they are to record their information. I would prefer that you use this; however, under the circumstance, you will not have this handout. So, use a blank sheet of paper, divide it vertically, and record the information about one character in the left column and the other character in the right column.

2. You should also select the images you want to include on your web page to help us. Please select these pictures through "Google Images," and record the URLs for each image on "your" outline. You must include the URLs in your work cited, so you might as well record them here, too.

3. Remember that you need to have a total of FIVE SOURCES (two from the Internet, and then three from book sources). I am also requiring that you record ALL of your works cited information on your outline, as it needs to be posted on your web site, which we will create in class on MONDAY.

4. ALL of your information needs to be recorded in ONE LOCATION! I will check this off when I see you in class on Monday.

5. Let me know if you have any questions. You can reach me via e-mail at
