Finding Reliable Resources

Watch the YouTube video on finding reliable resources for your research paper. There is so much information on the World Wide Web today. Some websites provide biased information.  Some websites contain inaccurate information. The main purpose of some websites is to sell products to the reader. High school and college students cannot just google a topic or go to Wikipedia for accurate information. Using scholarly journals and reference texts are good sources of information. Teachers and professors are experts in their fields.  They can recognize bias and inaccuracies. Be careful not to plagiarize. Be sure to give credit to sources by including parenthetical citations within the research paper and complete a "Works Cited" page at the end of the paper listing all your sources in alphabetical order.
