In this guide, you'll find information (and assignments) on the following topics:
Be sure to check each section for an assignment as you work your way through the tabs.
When you begin your research, you may find that you're not getting a lot of "scholarly," or peer-reviewed sources (also known as academic articles). This might be because your topic is too recent! The Information Cycle shows the timeline for when things are published related to an event. If you're not finding as many scholarly articles and books, consider broadening your topic a bit.
Note for the sciences: In the sciences, research studies often go to a scholarly journal first and then to the news media (if they're published in the news.)
