United States History: United States History

Daily to dos

Friday, May 25th.

Your final 6 citations and annotations are due on Tuesday, May 29th.  Print outs are due by May 30th.  I will grade your final copy with all 12 citations and annotations in hard copy. Please turn your rubric in with your Annotated Works Cited. Mr. B. has instructions, or check out this page: https://noodletools.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/6000055017-how-to-print-export-your-source-list

I have provided feedback this week on your citations and annotations.  See your rubric if you have questions. Extra copies are available in the library. Many of you need to edit both your citations and annotations more carefully.  Remember, source selection was an important criteria for your project.  You were to use a variety of source formats, and all of your sources should be accurate, authoritative, and academic.  Again, refer to your rubric, which is included below.  I also have provided some exemplars from your peers.  

Last, download your annotated Works Cited and share it with me via Turnitin.  Directions to follow after Memorial Day.
