  1. Research Guidelines

  2. Warm-up • Write in your agenda • Get your notebook. • In your notebook, Label the second page- Research Guidelines 9/3/15 • Jot down anything you remember about reliability of sources: • What have you done for projects throughout middle school? • What have teachers told you? • What have you learned/heard on your own? • What opinions and beliefs do you have about reliable sources.

  3. Trends • .net, .edu, .org, .gov = Always Reliable • .com, Wikipedia = Never Reliable

  4. Are these ideas accurate?

  5. Reliable • Consistently good in quality or performance; able to be trusted (GoogleDictionary)

  6. Wikipedia • Reliability? • What should we use if for? • •

  7. Guidelines for Research in Social Studies

  8. Steps to successful research: • Create a folder on your computer/flash drive and give it the name of the specific research you are working on. For example, for your Famous Black American project you should create a folder and name it (yes of all things) Famous Black Americans . • Create a word document to copy and paste links of websites that you think will help you in your research. With the link you should make a simple description to help you remember why you saved the link in the first place. Example: Map of geographical regions of west coast of Africa and the numbers (estimates) of slaves taken from each region and where they were taken to. This site also references the fact that the preferred slaves in Virginia were Ibo/Igbo. It also contains quotes from the Founding Fathers.

  9. Steps to research continued: • After you have looked at a few sites you are now ready to revisit some of the links you have saved in the word document you created. Go to one of the links and start reading. If you find information you think you can/will use copy that information and paste it into another word document. Make sure that you paste the link with the document for future reference. I may very well ask you to show me where you found certain information. • Start reading and annotating the documents.

  10. This is the link you can/should use for all Social Studies research. You should at least begin your research here.

  11. The links and documents have been vetted and will be much more reliable than sources/links that you may find by doing a Google or Bing search. Once you get to this site you should do the following: • Click on the History Content tab at top of page. • Scroll down the page on the right and click on the History Gateway option. • Type in the topic of your research. If you are researching a person you will need to use their first and last name.

  12. Other useful websites: This is the homepage for Colonial Williamsburg. This site has great stuff but will probably not help much with explorer research. This site contains documents and teacher resources starting pre- 1492 to present day.

  13. This site contains an extensive collection of primary documents related to American History and also a great collection of World History primary documents dating back to 4000 b.c.e. Library of Congress. This is a great site but I suggest that you look at the sites devoted specifically to History/Social Studies before coming here.

  14. Contains the full index of documents/pictures from the PBS project on Africans in America. I have done extensive research here on numerous African Americans. Slavery and the Making of America. Fabulous site. Documenting the American South homepage by the University of North Carolina.

  15. Relatively new site to me. It looks promising for our African American Experience Research. You will need to create a password to use this site. Access is free. As you create your profile you will be asked if we are an affiliate school. Yes we are. Being an affiliate school gives us access to documents and resources that the general public can’t.
