Why do you think it is important to include information from several credible resources when creating a research project? How do you know if a source is credible?

--> It is important 2 do this because it gives you different thoughts on the same subject. Due to the fact that one side of a story isn't good enough, having several credible resources for a project is a good idea.

03.23.10-> letter to school admission

To whom it may concern,
I believe Mobile learning is a good technique for this school. Due to low supply students are unable to been home work that was done is class, so instead work is left in school to be finished the next day. With teenagers it only take hours for them to forget what they learned. If students are given mobile learning they would be more able to remember. Work will be take home and it would be much easier to travel with school work.
