In this video, you will write an informative paragraph about your topic using the credible
information you found in your search.
Before you write your paragraph, read back through your notes to review and organize
the information you found.
Note similarities and differences between the sources.
You could highlight the information that appears in more than one source
or add a comment if your sources do not agree.
Experiment with tools that work best for your writing process.
Then, add a horizontal line to separate your writing from your research notes.
In your research notes document, place the cursor under your topic name.
Click Insert and horizontal line.
Above the line, write a short paragraph using the information you found.
Think about how you would explain your topic to a classmate or your teacher.
Then, start writing!
Include a direct quotation only if it is something you could not explain in your own words,
like a specific term or phrase.
Try to explain your topic yourself, rather than relying on text from other sources.
When you finish writing your paragraph, move on to the next video to wrap up your research.
