Keep track of your sources before you’re even sure if you’ll use a source or not, it’s a good idea to write down citation information, in case you need to track down a piece of information you didn’t think you’d need. Use your resources. The OWL and the Little Brown Handbook can answer many of your specific questions regarding citation, punctuation, and even research practices. Review the rubric as you put your casebook together, and carefully before submitting your casebook. Develop a storage and organization plan to keep track of your work (flash drive, Google docs, etc.). By the time National History Day is over you will have many files. Use folders.
