During this unit, you will:
1. Watch and take notes on the video below.
2. Take the Unit 4 Quiz located in the Quizzes area of our course on Canvas.
To complete the Guided Activities, watch the two videos below. The videos refer to documents posted at the bottom of the Guided Activities area.
To apply what you have learned in this unit, use the Reynolds Library databases to find some articles (both scholarly and popular) that will help you to answer one or more of your research questions (the main question or one of your sub-questions). Then, you should evaluate them using the Articles - Evaluate Your Source checklist posted under Guided Activities to determine whether the sources are authoritative. Be sure to complete one checklist per source, and be sure the checklists make it into your Research Folder.
In addition to finding authoritative sources for your research project, use the collecting_interpreting template in the Course Materials area of Canvas to take notes on and think about the relevant material in the sources. The relevant material is the information that helps to answer one or more of your research questions (the main question or one of your sub-questions). Be sure to complete one collecting_interpreting document per source, and be sure the documents make it into your Research Folder.
If you need help finding sources, contact a librarian using the information to the left of this page.
If you have questions about the assignment, please post them to the FAQ forum.
