NON: Resources

On Friday we will be discussing the type of resources available and how to find each one. Our trip to the library should take care of the books and magazine articles if they have a library card. If not, they will need to go to the library this weekend and get books.

 Below is a list of recommended resources:

1 - Autobiography
1 - Biography
1 - Children's Biography (A children's biography gives the student a quick and dirty feel for their person. It is easy to get through and lets them paint the big picture before diving into meatier books.)
1 - Video - Videos are another way to get a feel for the big picture and to get a visual feel for the person.
1 - Magazine Article
3  - Websites
1 - Interview

Other places we talked about are social media, papers written by the person, and  newspaper articles. The wider the variety of sources the more interesting the information will be and the easier it is to fact check. If you're getting the same information from 4 different source types, you're likely on the right track.

  1. Hi my name is sunny and for this summer we are supposed to talk about what we are interested in and why. Keeping short I’m going to talk about my interest in horses, training horses to be exact. I have been working with my horse Saraya for more than 3 years now 1 year was spent doing 4 h which is like soccer but instead of a ball it’s a horse except your not kicking the horse and I eventually quit because I got it down and I just didn’t see the point of continuing 4 h so I quit and did it myself and I’m still doing it by myself and it’s been the best two years of my life.

    Why I started horses is because every time I go to the barn I just forget about everything even when I’m having a bad day we will just drop everything and go see my horse it’s like therapy to me and it just fun in general.
