This weekend, start typing up your outlines.

I have shared with you a Google Document that gives you a better understanding of how you might want to break it down.  We will work on this heavily next week, but it would be a very good idea to get started typing it up.  It will be due soon, and doing all this work now will save you a lot of time and energy later!  (I promise.)

Enjoy your weekend!

Call Me Maybe

This video craaaaaaaaaacked me up.  It's the Harvard Baseball team on a road trip.

It's worth watching through to the end.
Notice the guy who somehow stays asleep the entire time.

You've been working and working on your research papers, and now it is time to submit what you have found.

Due WEDNESDAY, May 9, by 11.59pm:

The shared document of your research, which includes:
- Your topic
- 8 questions about your topic
- 10 tags for searching (use the actual terms you would enter into Google or other search bars)
- 10-15 sources of reliable research (fully documented with title, author, URL, summary, and quotations)
- 3 potential thesis statements

Next week you will choose one of your thesis statements and begin drafting your paper!

I can sense your excitement :)

Happy weekend!

P.S.  for your listening pleasure

Springtime Mix

Well kiddos, I made you an energetic mix for springtime.  It was inspired by one of your very own, student GV.  I hope you like it!

Google Scholar

Did you know about Google Scholar?  It's a search engine within Google that sorts out scholarly articles in your search.  If your tags are strong and your search is smart, you will be able to let Google sort out the reliable sources from the unreliable ones for you!

Give it a shot!
