Student Errors

These are the most common errors students make and ways to avoid making them:

1. They do not use Noodle Tools and their formatting is incorrect.

Avoidance: Use Noodle Tools to get perfect formatting.

2. They use Noodle Tools and then make changes.

Avoidance: Don't change anything except the title if it's a bibliography.

3. They do not print/export to Google from Noodle Tools.

Avoidance: Print/export every time you make a change.

4. They do not have a topic sentence in the annotation.

Avoidance: Start by telling what type of source it is (primary or secondary) and then briefly state what it's about. 

5. They do not have a closing sentence in the annotation.

Avoidance: Tie it all back together. Why are you using this evidence? What is your point?
