Finding and Saving Information


You are going to run a short research to find some material about the topic you chose. The resources can be from:
  • People
  • Newspapers
  • Books
  • Periodicals
  • Encyclopedias
  • Internet
Create a pre-Bibliography. Find at least four reliable sources in English, which will give you information on the topic you chose. Type the pre-Bibliography according to the Bibliography rules.
  • You should keep a copy of the texts in a Word file called bibliography.
  • You should read the texts to make sure you understand them.
  • On your saved copy you can underline or highlight important information.
  • You must summarize the information in your own words.


Using Keywords


Look for your information on the Internet by using the key words from your topic.
