In college you will often be asked to find sources to use in research papers...
- Academic/Scholarly Sources: Books, Journal Articles
- "Credible" Sources: Magazine Articles, Newspaper Articles, Websites(?)
Today you're going to practice finding different types of sources. (Show us your research skillz!)
- http://rattler.tamucc.edu ← This is where you should start!

- http://www.wikipedia.org ← What about this?
Please get into THESE groups!
