CHW 3M: The Olympiad

As you search for sources for your particular topic, keep the following in mind:

  • Databases are your friends
  • Learn 360 is also a friend
  • Adding site:.edu to the end of any Google search  will return university/educational websites from the US. While this does not guarantee that the source will be good, it will help you eliminate many that are not
  • Each article on a website counts as a different source. Thus, while looking at the description of the events at http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/Olympics/ is important, the links at the bottom of each event page are just as useful,
  • During your presentation, you need to refer directly to your sources For example, you could start an important point by saying “According to the authors of the Perseus Digital Library Project…”
