Look for high quality sources when conducting your research. Here are a few pointers:
A high quality source
is written by a knowledgable author/expert in the field
is unbiased and does not push an agenda
has been published/peer reviewed.
is either of a time period (historical) or up to date (contemporary).
is free of distracting ads or graphics
provides links to other reputable sources.
provides citations or is easy to cite
****When using the internet, remember that the better sites will likely end in ".org", “.edu” or “.gov”.
Capstone Projects will require you to use multiple and diverse sources of information.
