Greetings Climate Researchers!

This site will provide you with some reliable resources for your research and some guidance on creating citations. Use these resources first, and only turn to internet browsing if you can’t find any information and you’ve already asked for help from Ms. Kunz. Remember to always evaluate the source of your information based on its Authority (who wrote it?), potential Bias, and Currency (is it up to date?). 

Log into 4J Google Docs and have one person create and share a Climate Change Project Works Cited page first. The EasyBib add-on can help you manage your bibliography.
Create your citation list as you gather your information–it’s a lot more time, work, and stress to try to create it at the end of your project, and can result in accidental plagiarism.

Books on Climate Change are on display on the bookcase near the computers.

Citation for a book includes the following information in this format:
Last Name, First Name. Title of Book. Publisher, Publication Date.

For example:
Romm, Joseph. Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know. Oxford University
     Press, 2018.

Your Works Cited page should look like this example. Remember that a URL (website address) alone is NOT a citation!
Use the EasyBib add-on in Google docs, Citation Maker, or consult the Purdue OWL for more MLA citation help if you need to.
