Finding Sources and Taking Notes
Take a look at this website.
It gives a very straightforward explanation of the research process,
including taking notes on notecards.
Wikipedia articles are research papers and they list their sources at the end of the article. See if you can find some good ones.
However, Wikipedia is not always the best to use for school papers. Often, their sources are blocked when using district devices; sometimes their links are out of date; sometimes their sources are books that you won't have access to.
So use Google. Ask it for exactly what you're looking for: "Where did Louis Braille go to school?"
Often Google will show you the answer on the search page. You'll have to go to the source page to get the full information.
Remember, most teachers will not want you to use an online encyclopedia or similar site for your research.
This is where it becomes a challenge. You need to make a copy of these articles/ websites. You can then put it in Google Docs and take notes on the page. You're looking for information to fill in on your outline.
The video below (Recording #9 with narration) shows how to copy and paste a website article into a Google Doc and then writing a bit in the comment section.
Save all your sources and notes to a folder called "22-23 Encounters 7 or 8 Research Your Last Name"
