    2. Search on the key words "Dust Bowl". Locate the article "Living in the Dust Bowl (1934, by Anne Marie Lowe)". Read the entire article. Generate the MLA citation for the article and copy the citation.

    3. Log onto your NTHS Google account. Then go to http://www.easybib.com/. Create an account. Start a new bibliography. Upload the citation by choosing the database source, and clicking the link "copy and paste" in the bottom right corner. Paste the copied citation into the box and save the citation.

    you will have read one article, created one citation, and written one annotation. This must be completed by the start of Day #2. Whatever is missing from your bibliography at the end of class must be completed for homework tonight.
