You can take notes in your project packet, or online. (Make a copy of the notes template below.) You should be finding out:
- Full Name (Check spelling!)
- Birthday (Date of birth)
- Date of death -or- current age
- Interests and activities
- Other facts you think are important
Don’t forget to write down your sources! Use reliable sources to learn about the person you have chosen. Make sure you keep track of where you find your information. Plagiarism is serious! Create a Works Cited page using the space in your notes or on a separate sheet of paper. Please use MLA format and be especially careful to keep track where you found information online.
Example: Author. Title. Website title. Date published. Web. Date you accessed it. ‹http:// URL HERE›.
