Tips for Finding Your Additional Source
1. Know which side you are going to argue.
2. Choose your keywords based on that perspective.
If you're arguing people do NOT have a right to rescue services, try searching for articles/videos that mention the danger to rescuers. (Try keywords like: Rescuers AND danger)
If you're arguing people DO have a right to rescue services, try searching for articles/videos that focus on rescuers and the location where they work - mountains, fires, coast guard, etc. (Try keywords like: Rescuers AND mountain). You will still see some articles that focus on deaths of rescuers... be mindful of what you choose to support your point.
3. Make sure you consider the FORMAT where your source was originally published (Newspaper, Magazine, Radio, TV). You will need that information to create the correct citation in NoodleTools.
