Your instructor requires you to use the library and online web sites to research the topic.
You must also use the EBSCO online research database (for which you do NOT yet have an account.)
Your research must include at least 2 books, 2 periodical articles, and 4 different websites.
Your paper must be 5-7 pages of content, and must include a cover page and full citation in a bibliography.
The paper will be turned in on hard copy in a nice folio or report cover
In addition to turning in your research paper, the four of you are required to create a slide presentation summarizing your research.
