Assignment:
Now that you have written about the topic that you selected in Unit 1, it is time to explore what others have said about that same topic. To begin the process, use the AIU library databases and online search tools to locate at least 6 sources that are related to your topic.

The best way to begin this search is by first reading encyclopedia articles on the topic, especially the encyclopedias in the AIU library. Encyclopedia articles provide asummary of current information and, most important, a list of books and articles about the topic. You can often find titles of useful works at the end of encyclopedia articles.

Remember, encyclopedias and other reference books (online or print) can be consulted, but their information cannot be cited in your paper. This means that material fromreference works cannot be quoted or summarized in your paper. Reference works help you begin your exploration of a topic; however, reference works do not contain originalmaterial and therefore cannot be cited in your paper.

After consulting reference works, locate at least 6 credible sources related to your topic. These published works will inform you of arguments that are related to your topic.They can also provide evidence (facts, statistics, quotations, and examples) to support your own thesis and main points in the research paper that you will write later in the course.

The report provides evidence in support of the following contentions: that per-pupil spending is a driver of positive educational outcomes; that programs that tend to cost more tend to produce better student outcomes, with smaller class sizes being a prime example; and that state school finance reforms are vital, through a combination of greater funding and more accountability for the use of that funding. This report is useful because it presents some...
