Topic: (Should connect to your plan.)
Source: (Should be written as it will appear in your works cited page.)
Cut and paste or take notes. Paraphrase or summarize what you have read. Any direct quotes have quotation marks on the note page.
Keep the notes together by topic not by source.
1. Most important: Do you have enough support? Every argument you present in your paper should be supported which includes documentation of the source. THIS MEANS THAT I CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR PLAN CLEARLY SHOWS WHERE YOU INTEND TO USE EACH SOURCE.
2. Your source and note cards or pages should be cross-referenced.
3. Citations should be according to MLA or APA requirements. USE THE DANG HARBRACE HANDBOOK.
