This project requires at least 5 CAR sources. At least one of these sources not be a website. An article from an on-line database or encyclopedia, or a book (including the course packet) count as a non-web source. Remember that the point of your research is to learn about your topic. You will then be teaching what you have learned about your chosen area of Roman culture to your classmates through your presentation.
Remember most articles and websites have features that can help you evaluate the depth of the information they offer such as bold or italicized titles, headings and sub-headings, or Site Map much like those in our textbook. As we have practiced with our textbook, you should always preview these aspects of a source to evaluate how useful it will be in providing information on your particular topic before beginning to take notes.
Meanwhile, when doing research online you should always remember to use CAR sources. As you learned in fifth grade, research resources that you find or access through Town Library Online has CAR resources, but Wikipedia or some of the sites you may pull up through a general Google search may not be CAR resources.
