  1. Good Morning! Happy Friday! Take a seat. We will begin with a short video to close our discussion yesterday.

  2. How can I tell if a source is valid or in-valid If the website is one where anyone can go on and post information or responses to questions, the website is invalid. You do not want to leave the credibility of your research in the hands of Rodrigo from Los Angeles who decided he would go on Wikipedia and write funny stuff about George Washington.

  3. Examples of In-valid websites: • Wikipedia • About.com • Answers. Com <--- write these down! • Askjeeves.com **To check if a piece of information is true, type the info into google. If you find the same piece of information on three separate valid websites, then the info is probably true. ***

  4. Suggestions for research: People with Causes: Oprah Winfrey (the Angel network) Blake Mykoyskie (TOMS shoes) PETA and its celebrity supporters Nancy Goodman Brinker (Susan G. Komen Foundation) Millard and Linda Fuller (Habitat for Humanity) Danny Thomas (St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital) Martin Luther King Jr. ( The Civil Rights Movement) Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Women’s Rights Movement) Harriet Tubman (The Underground Railroad) Rev. John Culp (Salkehatchie Missions)

  5. Suggestions for research: Influential People: Princess Diana Anne Frank Mother Teresa Malcom X Benjamin Franklin Mohandas Gandhi Bill Gates Steve Jobs Rosa Parks Nelson Mandella Billy Graham Winston Churchill Thurgood Marshall Tim Tebow Marie Curie Bob Marley Joan of Arc Elie Wiesel

  6. Suggestions for research: Note: If you choose one of these, you will not only be researching the event but searching for stories of ordinary people responding to crisis. Natural Disasters: Hurricane Katrina September 11th Shootings with innocent victims (Colorado movie massacre, The Tuscon, AZ shooting) School shootings (Virginia Tech/ Columbine)

  7. Organizations: The Armed Forces The Peace Corps

  8. Remember the purpose: You are writing about people who have made a difference and how. You are looking for FACTS to support your argument. So if you write about the Army, you should not only tell me about the Army, but find specific stories about soldiers making a difference! There are plenty out there.

  9. Remember the Purpose: If you are writing about Oprah, you will not only give me a brief biography of her life, but also about the good works she has done. **Make sure you find a balance between these two. Do not spend the majority of your paper on her biography.

  10. Remember the Purpose: If you are writing about a natural disaster or a tragedy, you are not only writing about the event itself, you are writing about any good that came from it. **Look for stories of everyday heroes stepping up. For example, in the Colorado movie theatre shooting, 9 nine men died by throwing themselves on top of their girlfriend’s/ wife’s to save them.

  11. Types of Sources: You are required to have: 1 discuss source (we will go over how to use this) You must have 6 sources total.
