NoodleTools is going to change the way that you research. In class, you will be given a login of your own. With NoodleTools, you will be able to have your bibliography created for you in correct MLA format, write and organize your facts on notecards, share your resources and facts with me so that I can comment on them, create an outline for your research paper, manage and analyze the types of resources for variety, and you will be able to export it all to word so that you can print them out!
