Getting Started...

Step 1:  Discover

To begin your "Birthday" assignment, you'll need to identify one or more events that occurred on or around your birthday. Daily newspapers, news magazines and chronologies can help you find out what happened on a particular date or during a particular time period.

Step 2:  Explore

Once you've selected the event(s) you want to write about, you can use other research tools to find out even more information about these events and conditions.

To begin, press the "Step 1" tab at the top of this guide.
