Integration of Knowledge & Ideas
Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words in order to address a question or solve a problem.
BOOKS are far superior to articles because they often have more images and text. Books should be the first stop in every research plan.
All the BOOKS below contain fantastic photographs that capture the Elizabethan Era. Flushing High School Library has the books listed in the FHS LIBRARY DESTINY DISCOVER CATALOG. Ask the Librarian for the username and password to access the Ebooks below online.
