 pumpkin.WMFHEY CLASS...NICE JOB WITH THE POLITICAL PAGES. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE MORE!  I'M BEGINNING TO THINK WE SHOULD DO SOME RESEARCH ALONG THESE LINES BEFORE ELECTIONS. WHAT DO YOU THINK? LET ME KNOW RIGHT HERE ON THE FRONT PAGE!

 

--> I think the research idea is great. Maybe if people were aware if each candidates thoughts and ideas, their oppinions would be based on actual facts rather than false information.   - Samantha =]

FAHRENHEIT 451 PROJECT GUIDELINES--after looking at "the beginnings"

 1. Use 3-5 sources, NOT including your pictures. Keep in mind that a search engine (Google, for instance) is not a source!

 2. When you use a quote, place the URL at the end of the quote.

 3. Don't depend almost entirely on just one source (like Wikipedia, for example).

 4. Instead of using a huge "cut and paste" from a website, summarize in your own words (again citing your source). You can then tell us where to find more information.

 5. Provide us with several links to other good sources so that we can learn more about your topic.

 6. Pictures are nice in an online project, so include some if you can. You may either place the URL with the picture or make the picture the actual link. (Ask me if you need to see the "how-to" again.

 7. Please ask questions about research during class if you need help. That's why I'm here!
