Mini-essay research

Note cards
following the note card example distributed in class, be prepared to have at least 5 research note cards, plus relevant resource cards, ready to be checked off in class on the due date. If the outline is the skeleton of your paper than the notecards provide the muscle. You will most likely need more than 10 research note cards to craft your paper. Here is the guide to note card creation.

Sources
Your paper should have a minimum of five sources, using primary sources whenever possible. Two of your sources must be books and you may not use Wikipedia entries as sources. See pages 3 and 4 of the Drake English Department Handbook for the proper citation format.

Due at the beginning of class on Friday, November 9th:
-at least five research note cards
-two source notecards - one for each source
-blank notecards - we are going to the library today.
