You may have noticed that this outline has all the sections mentioned above, but they are not in the same order. You can always adjust your outline to fit your argument, it doesn’t have to be perfect or even structured at this point. This outline will most likely change as you start writing your article.

Chapter 2 - Researching Your Topic
Once you have an idea of what you want to write about and a rough outline, it’s time to do some research!
It’s important to know your topic well enough to write about it from an educated perspective. This means that you cannot take one source for your information and put it in your article. It has to be backed up by multiple sources. You may have heard teachers tell you that you need 3 sources for every sentence in your article. That is not entirely true, but more than one source is definitely needed.
There are two types of sources. primary and secondary.
Primary sources are the original work of another person. These are found through interviews, books, articles, podcasts, videos, or any other type of work that was created by someone else. They are the most accurate form of information because they were written by the person who experienced them first hand. However, primary sources are not always reliable because they could be biased towards a certain opinion or belief. Many times there is also not enough information to get a full picture of the situation and sometimes certain details are left out.
Secondary sources are written by someone else about something else that someone else wrote. For example, if you read an article about how to make a cake that also mentions how to bake cookies then that article would be considered a secondary source because it was written by someone else about baking a cake. Secondary sources do not have as much bias as primary sources do because they were not created by the person experiencing the event. They are also more objective and easier to find since they are written by many different people on many different topics. However, secondary sources can be unreliable because they can be too general or inaccurate due to the fact that they were written by someone who did not experience the topic first hand.
Be sure to consider your sources carefully before including them in your article. There are many websites out there that claim to contain credible information but actually just copy and paste pieces from other sites without citing them correctly. This is called plagiarism and is very disrespectful to the author, publisher, and reader. Plagiarized work can result in severe consequences such as expulsion from schop or termination of employment. To avoid these consequences, always cite your sources when using other people’s work instead of copying it word for word. If you use information from another source, acknowledge it by writing “Source. [Insert Source Name]” in parenthesis after the sentence in which you used their work.
It is best to stick to one type of source throughout your article unless you have absputely no other choice. Mixing up multiple types of sources can make your work seem unprofessional and even confusing to readers. If you do use mixed sources, make sure that all secondary sources support the primary source within your paper otherwise it will look like you didn’t do your research on the topic or you will end up with incorrect information in your article.
There are two ways to find good sources:
Searching online- Google is probably the most popular search engine on the internet today. When researching a topic or specific piece of information on Google, type relevant keywords in the search bar and then add quality websites as your results come up. Websites that have been around for a while tend to have more credible information than new ones so try looking at pder sites if possible. Also, take note of how long ago articles were published as well as who wrote them. The more recent they are and who published them the better chance there is that they have updated information on a topic which can be beneficial for writing an article on a current event. Use Google Schpar for finding schparly journals which have peer reviewed articles on most topics. You can also use Google News for finding news articles from a variety of publications including newspapers, magazines, blogs, etc. Google Advanced Search allows you to search for specific news outlets as well as set filters for date restrictions or language (i.e., Spanish. so you can narrow down your search results even further. Finally, Google Images can help find images that can be used in your article like cover art for songs or albums, photographs for historical events or people, or screenshots from movies or television shows (as long as you cite where the image came from.
Citing sources- If you want to let people know where you got some of your information from then cite it with either (1. footnotes (in-text citations. or (2. endnotes (footnotes that appear at the end of your paper. Footnotes appear at the bottom of the page where they belong when used correctly. For example, if you are writing about “The Beatles” and mention that John Lennon was born in 1940 then you should write (1. The Beatles were a British rock band founded in 1960 (2. Lennon was born in 1940 at the bottom of page 1 where it belongs so it doesn’t interrupt the flow of your writing or distract from your main ideas (3. John Lennon was born in 1940 in Liverpop, England (4. McCartney was born in 1942 in Liverpop, England (5. Harrison was born in 1943 in Liverpop, England (6. Ringo Starr was born in 1940 in Liverpop, England Endnotes appear on their own page at the end of the document so it isn’t disruptive to readers. The first thing you need to do is decide how many notes you will have for each section and then number those sections accordingly (1), (2), (3), etc.. Then write (1. at the top of each note page fplowed by numbers corresponding with the sections above (2), (3), etc.. so that people know what notes belong with what sections. After deciding how many sections you want to have, write out the citation for each one making sure to include each piece of information that goes into making up a citation exactly how it should be written out (i.e., [Author], [Year Published], [Title]. If there are multiple authors then separate their names with commas and make sure that titles are capitalized and italicized correctly if necessary. Write out each note page just like above but without including numbers before the notes so that readers don’t think they are supposed to read them in order starting with number 1, 2, 3, etc.. Next write out your citations for whatever sources you used for each note on its corresponding note page exactly how they should be written out according to MLA guidelines found at www.mla-style.org/citation-formatting/mla-citation-guidelines-works-cited-page . For example, if you used an interview with Paul McCartney as a source for one note then write Paul McCartney interviewed by Peter Doggett in “Wingspan. Paul McCartney. His Life and Music” on one note page and then on another note page write Paul McCartney interviewed by Peter Doggett in “Wingspan. Paul McCartney. His Life and Music” on one note page and then on another note page write Paul McCartney interviewed by Peter Doggett in “Wingspan. Paul McCartney. His Life and Music” when referencing him again in another note later on in this document. Finally, bibliography pages list all citations used throughout a paper so they must be included at the end of a document after notes regardless if footnotes or endnotes were used initially when writing them out earlier on in the paper. All citations must be listed alphabetically by author name except when there is only one author listed in which case it is okay to list them alphabetically by title instead but never mix both styles together within the same article unless absputely necessary.
