Creating Bibliography Pages
You need one for every paper/project you do to cite your sources. Why? So you give credit to those that gave you your information, and for others to know where to look if they want to know more.
Two online resources to create a bibliography:
www.easybib.com - you can't save the information in the free version, but if you only have a couple sources and can save in your own file, it is good.
www.noodletools.com - very easy to follow; you set up an account and it creates lists for you and saves them so you can come back to them later. It also has an easy 'save as Word document' and 'email' features.
Organizing Information and Essay Writing
Hints for organizing an essay:
1. Look for the catchy phrase or opening that introduces the subject.
2. Look for the topic sentence that tells the three areas the essay will be talking about.
3. Find the first detail sentence talked about in #2.
4. Find the second detail sentence talked about in #2.
5. Find the third detail sentence talked about in #2.
REMEMBER: If there is more than one detail sentence for that area, order them in a logical way, with the one that introduces the other first.
6. Look for the conclusion sentence that mentions the three areas again.
7. Finally, look for an opinion, a summing up of the essay, suggestion, etc. that leaves you thinking about the topic.
Here is a practice essay. The correct order is listed at the end. Practice first before looking at the answers.
Organize the following information so that it could be used to write a paper about the essay question,
"Why Living at the Top of a Mountain is Bad"
Put the correct order that the sentences should be used in from introduction to conclusion.
_____ The food at the top of a mountain is very scare and you will probably only find some moss, a couple rocks, and some really tough insects.
_____ So if you are thinking about moving, maybe you should check into other options that have a little more to offer.
_____Living at the top of a mountain is a bad place to be because of the food, weather, and variety of friends.
_____ Usually the weather is very bad every day with strong winds, lots of clouds, and extremely cold temperatures. Bring your mittens!
_____Have you ever thought about moving and thought that it looked wonderful and peaceful at the top of a mountain? Think again!
_____The peaks of the mountains only hold loneliness and solitude, unless you can find a stray angry mountain goat to be your pet.
_____ The tops of the mountains look very inviting, but it would be better to take your chances at the bottom of the sea or the depths of the rain forest if you want any kind of real friends, food, and livable climate.
_____Tired of friends that are shallow and uncaring? You won´t have to worry about friends here!
