Here are links to some websites I found the most helpful during this course. Some of them were provided to me by others, while one is a treasure of a site I've used since high school. If you choose to use them in the future, I hope they help you as much as they helped me.
- Google Scholar - This one might seem a bit obvious, but as I pointed out here, this was a miracle during the process of writing my second paper. http://scholar.google.com/
- Purdue OWL APA Style Guide - This site has been my citation bible since high school. It covers most citation issues, but there are a few missing. For example, it does not tell you how to cite a U.S. law. Purdue OWL also has style guides for other citation formats. http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
- Writing Abstracts - Professor Queen gave the class this link. It is a clear and concise explanation for how to write a good abstract. Because I had never written an abstract before taking this class (click here for details), I often referred to this site to give me tips and to see if I was including everything needed. http://research.berkeley.edu/ucday/abstract.html
- Justia.com - If you ever need documents from a Supreme Court case, this is the website to visit. I used this site during the research and writing of all three of my essays. http://www.justia.com/
- The First Amendment Center - Here is another link provided by Professor Queen. Based out of Vanderbilt University, this site contains scholarly opinions on current First Amendment Issues. This site was extremely useful when I wrote my first essay and was just starting to grasp the concepts of this course. http://www.firstamendmentcenter.org/
- Jazzing Up Digication - Click here for a PDF that explains how to change the different aspects of a portfolio using the CSS coding under Settings. To get the code for color changes, go to http://www.colorpicker.com/.
