 Finding Source Material:

Often, you will not find a source that gives exactly what you are looking for, but you can look through the sources and find bits and pieces to build your argument. You will need to have at least SEVEN sources. See the source material guidelines below:

    Sources must have been published within the last ten years.
    All sources must be retrieved from the following databases:
