1 Learning Objective : Today we will use organizational features of printed text to locate relevant information. organizational= ways to sort out something Relevant=something that is related

2 What are we going to use today? Today we will use organizational features of printed text to locate relevant information.

3 Everyone know where we can find the Table of Contents. Tell you partner where we can find the Table of Contents.

4 There are other features of printed text that we must also learn about! Citations End notes Bibliographic references

5 Citation When you write a research report and you want to quote something that someone else wrote, you have to give them credit. You give them credit for what they wrote by including a citations. You also have to give the other authors credit even if you decide to paraphrase what they wrote.

6 End Notes End notes are the way that you keep track of the authors you are citing. They are placed at the bottom of the page that you cited. When you write research papers, you will be required to write the end notes at the bottom of your paper. You usually use a number written at the end of the sentence.

7 Bibliography At the end of your report, you must also list the names of all the resources that you used for you research report. They are written in alphabetical order.

8 Table of Contents The table of contents lists chapter titles and their page numbers in order. Chapter titles tell you the topic of each chapter.

9 Index Index is found in the back of the book. It alphabetically lists names, places, and topics that are found in the book. Next to each entry are the page numbers where the topic is mentioned or discussed.

10 Appendix An appendix appears at the end of the book. It contains extra information such as maps, tables, and lists that relate to the topic. Sometimes there is more than one appendix.

11 So how will the questions look like on the CST test?

13 Rainbows are pretty. When it rains late in the afternoon and the sun is setting, rays of light from the sun sometimes pass through raindrops in the sky. When they pass through the raindrops at a low angle, this causes the light to bend.¹ So, when you see the colors of the rainbow, you are actually witnessing light bending through a raindrop. Since light also bends as it passes through clear glass or a prism, it can cause a rainbow to form. Donald Ahrens was quoted in an online article, “About Rainbows” as saying that rainbows are “one of the most spectacular light shows observed on earth.”² You can have your own light show if you’d like. All you need is clear glass or plastic and a ray of sunshine, and you, too, can make your own rainbow. So, make a rainbow. ¹ Rainbow Facts: “Questions About Rainbows” ² Unidata-About Rainbows: “About Rainbows” (31 May 2005). Rainbows by Sylvia Guitterez
