Choose your topic. Gather information and prepare your evidence.

a) Think about a situation of division that would benefit from increased unity.
b) Research your topic and choose three to four credible sources that support your view.
c) Keep track of your sources using cards. For each source, write the author, the URL, and the
organization’s name.
d) On your cards, take notes on key ideas, quotations, and supporting details from each source.
Remember not to plagiarize.
e) Check that your notes are thorough. If you plan to quote someone directly, write the exact words in quotation marks. Otherwise, paraphrase the text in your own words. Keep in mind that you will use the notes you take to create citations later, so source information is important.
