Once you find more than four or five sources, it can be difficult to keep track of the ways you might compare and contrast the information found in each source.
- Without looking at your sources, identify 2-5 themes of information that develop over multiple sources (not necessarily all of them).
- Create a table in a Word, Excel, or Google Doc or Spreadsheet. Use this spreadsheet as an example (you may also COPY this spreadsheet to your own document).
- Input your theme ideas into the final columns in the spreadsheet.
- Fill out a row for each source you have. Do not just mark yes/no that the source discusses this theme; instead, include brief notes on how the source discusses the theme, including what reasons and evidence it uses.
- Share-out: In the comments thread below, upload a document with your notes or provide a link to where you have posted your notes elsewhere (make sure they are posted publicly).
