       Gathering Research
Today you will get your research notebooks.

 By the end of the week, you must
 collect between 4-7 pages of
 information in your notebook.

Your information must be handwritten.
Your information must be organized.
       Why handwritten?
I already printed this stuff out at my
grandma’s house. Why do I have to write
it? Can’t I just staple it in my notebook?

You have to read and understand the
information before you write. To prove
that you have done this, I need evidence
of your reading and thinking.
    Organizing Your Information
   Separate your information into main ideas.
   This will save you time.
   Each will become a section in your paper.
