Using Websites 

Start with the links on the top even if there is a site specific to your topic.

Remember that all websites (even the recommended ones) must be evaluated for reliability. Evaluations are on back on note taking sheets.

Wikipedia is not an accepted research source. It works as a search engine though. Look at the External Links at the bottom.

Pages you used from the web site must be printed. If you find a site at home but can't print it, send a hyperlink to theresa.church@fcps.org and I will print it for you.
