Civil Rights Project
This research guide is for Ms. Lander's 8th grade social studies students. You are a person who was active in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s. You have been invited to a dinner party where you will talk about your experiences in the movement and beyond. Get to know your person by using a minimum of 3 sources. You must use one book, one database article, and another source of your choosing. You must cite your sources in NoodleTools and take notes on notecards.
You need sources from these 3 categories.
BOOKS: There is a big cart of books in Ms. Lander's room. You should also search the library catalog—there may be other books in the Galloway Library that would be perfect for your research. Remember the Noodle Tools App when citing books. It allows you to scan the book's barcode with your phone and cites the book for you.
DATABASES: See the tab called "Sources of Information" for the Galloway Library databases.
WEBSITES: Use the smart Google searching techniques found on this page to find quality websites.
