Research: Students can find reliable websites by searching for sites through EasyBib. EasyBib rates the credibility of websites.

Instruction and Planning Research Projects

I would love to help you in instructing students as they begin and work through a research project. I can show students quality resources they can use, how to cite sources, and teach them effective search strategies. I can also help with planning a project and gathering resources and websites. Let me know! You can find me in the media center, call me at x2607 or email me at lcoddington@burnsville.k12.mn.us.
