DO NOT INCLUDE INFORMATION REGARDING: Politics, History, Religion, Government, etc. These issues may be noted on your websites; that does not mean you need to use them! You will cover these issues later in the year.
The websites listed below are simply a starting point. Do not limit yourself to these. Explore all other websites (except Wikipedia!). You must have at least three truly-used references for your report. Be careful. With the internet, this is very easy to verify.
Plagiarism will not be tolerated! If your paper is plagiarized your grade will result in a ZERO! Just because you document your resource, that does not mean you have not plagariarized. You must put the information into your own words!
