The research portion of this class was taught me a lot about how to obtain useful information and use it to help me construct an essay. For me some of the best sources came from the actual course readings. When you read the required material and then were asked to write about it, pulling quotes and then giving the author credit was simple, the only difficult part was finding those good quotes. Another good source of information came from the class discussions and my classmates who brought up great points and really got me to think about the course and the material we went over.
Obtaining information from the internet can be incredibly useful but impossible at the same time. After going to class at the library where we learned to how use various words and phrases in search engines to find exactly what we wanted, searching for sources became a breeze. Giving the sources their credit and mention as well as making sure not to plagiarize was not difficult because I used all my information as facts or to help form my opinions on topics. In this portion of my essay you can find all the sources I used in my work for the class.
