In Class today...

A short in-class assignment that will (hopefully) help you get a great head-start on your project.


Using Web Sources

Let's talk about this website: Center for Immigration Studies.

And also this one: National Immigration Law Center.

The CRAAP Test

Is it current?

Is it relevant?

Is it authoritative?

Is it accurate?

Does it have a specific purpose?


Getting Started

So - what do you already know about your group/country?  Not much?  That's OK!  Here are a few places that will help get you started.  As you look through these sources, pay special attention to:

  • vocabulary and language that will help you conduct searches later on
  • names, dates, events that seem important (again, to help with later searching)
  • background information that helps you to understand and contextualize this group/country and their circumstances


SAGE Knowledge

Encyclopdia Britannica

Also, Wikipedia.  And just Googling it.  But watch it.
