Please see the grading rubric attached and evaluate your work before the submission! Also, I highly recommend you to use the resources available at the NIU Writing Center!
Academic sources means textbooks and articles from academic journals not newspapers or facebook! Wikipedia is not a valid source of reference!
Articles from these publications, or with the following characteristics, are NOT academic:

- very short articles (eg one or two pages)
- articles that have no bibliography
Please Use the book as your main source.
