Assignment

This week you'll be working in a team to complete this week's assignment.  Use this guide to access the:

  • Google doc for your team (for submission, must be converted to a Word document to post in Canvas)
  • Databases and search engines that you will use to complete part of the assignment (2nd tab)
  • Additional information on Evaluating Sources (3rd tab)
  • Additional information on Citing Sources (4th tab)

Your team will  be assigned a specific group name with a specific research question.  Your team will need to access the Google Doc associated with that group assignment and designate who will work on what equitably and fairly.  Only one team member will convert the Google Doc into a Word document and submit on behalf of the team into Canvas. 

Note, a "0" will be given to team members due to the following omissions in the worksheet:

  • The group name that was assigned is not included
  • The research question that was assigned was not included 

This assignment will be graded as a team contribution to the names listed on the worksheet (this means that all team members will receive the same grade).  If your name is not listed on any team member's worksheet, then a 0 will be assigned as your grade.  If your name appears on more than one assignment, you will receive points to the assignment with the fewest number of points earned.
