Create 20–25 note cards (one fact per card) with information from your research. Give each card a heading. Note the source number and the page number for each paraphrase, summary, or quotation. Then, make stacks that categorize the different kinds of information. Which information is most relevant to support the ideas in your paper? Which information does not fit in? Do you need more of a certain topic? If so, then do more research and make more cards. Throw out any information that you cannot use.
