    Obama Care (you can also search under Health Care Reform), Student Loans, National Debt, Minimum Wage, and The American Dream.

    Overview articles giving background, plus the main arguments pro&con. Good for: Obama Care (health care reform), National Debt (debt crisis), Minimum Wage. Limited coverage of Small Business and Student Loans.
  • SIRS Researcher  
    Very good coverage on Health Care Reform, National Debt, and minimum wage. Articles on all of the other topics, too, but be careful with your searching.

Noodle Tools

Use Noodle Tools to create your MLA Works Cited.  If you already have an account, just create a new project.  Or, you can create an account to begin a project. 



Don't forget, the library has several copies of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 8th ed.  If you can't find an example of a source in our KHS handout, check the complete handbook for help.  Even better, ask your teacher or Ms. Teixeira for assistance.
