March 7: This week you are to begin your note-taking (as directed by Ms. Souza) and continue identifying research sources. Remember to follow the note-taking format she taught you. For this project, you are required to use at least 2 relevant books and at least 2 relevant internet articles.



Step 1. Identify at least 2 relevant books.
I have sent all disease/disorders related books from the library to Ms. Souza's classroom for the remainder of this project. This way, you will be able to share and make use of book information during your daily class work time. However, you can still access many e-books on diseases (electronic books) on the computer during library class time. If you are having trouble finding books on your topic, these e-books (electronic books) will help you. Though they are read online, e-books are still, in fact, books and should not be confused with internet articles.
