Need: Students are required to use at least 5 credible sources, but have struggled to identify and use them.
Enhancement (see esp. #2):
(1) Instruction: Credible sources meet all 3 criteria: (a) written by a named [with rare exceptions] authority on the subject under discussion; (b) timely [which usually, but not always, means recent]; (c) has minimal bias [completely objective sources don't exist].
(2) Template: Students type into/complete the attached Word document, "Research Packet." (10 points of speech)
