We have purchased the following database that is perfect for this project!
- U.S. History in Context -- our password is school
- If you need help finding a topic, click on "Browse all topics." There are SO many to choose from, and undoubtedly you can find "breaking barriers" in many major topics that involve U.S. History.
- If you know your topic, type a few key words into the search box, using quotation marks around words that you want to keep together.
- On the right, there are various categories that may have good information on your topic: Viewpoints, Primary Sources, News, Academic Journals, Reference, Magazines, Audio, Images, Statistics, and Related Topics. You can choose one of these or look through all of them.
- Click on the titles of anything that sounds most relevant and read through them.
- To find the citation for the articles, click on "Citation Tools" on the right side of your page under the heading "Tools." The citation will pop up and it should be in MLA format. Click on the NoodleTools button on the right under "Export." If you are logged into NoodleTools with your project open, the citation will show up in your list of sources.
