For years I watched students struggle with the concept of research. There was a disconnect between what I expected and what they wanted. I expected them to conduct research with their paper in mind, building their citations as they go. They want to get the project done quickly and easily. This resource meets both expectations!
This freebie asks students to build their source's citation on the front page, helping them record important information in the proper order. The backside asks them to summarize the important parts of the source, record any important quotes, and indicate how they will use the source's information in their project. This can be used to build MLA or APA citations.
This resource has been a lifesaver for me in all of my research projects and even for speeches! Please enjoy!
