Online encyclopaedias are great for short, concise and reliable information. It may be best to access these articles from the Online encyclopaedias page through the Hale portal. Don't forget Britannica has ready made citations for you to use.
Add a selection of quality links at an appropriate reading level. I prefer the summary information added as a hover text. This is where time and expertise is vital. Ask teachers for any of their favourites to include if possible. Check Weblinks. If you have a large list of contenders then consider sorting your links into multiple boxes.
It is important to refine your search terms as your understanding more about your topic. Make sure you check your focus questions or task sheet guidelines. It is often best to use Google Advanced Search to narrow your search further and save yourself time.

It is important to provide evidence of using a variety of reliable resources. Use the online Reference Generator available through the Portal to create your citations. Make sure you alphabetically sort them afterwards. Click here for a Hale School guide to referencing.
