what wires go where?

added a 8x10 addition on to my mobile home.ran wire for three juntion boxes that will have double receptables in each.mobile home doesnt have any double receptables in, so im not sure how to wire them correctly.each receptable has two silver screws on one side and two gold toned screws on the other.im thinking the black supply will go on one side and the white on the other. then i run a black jumper from the bottom screw witch is on the same side as the black supply to the other receptable.do the same for the white, and tie the three grounds to there screw.would this be correct? thanks for any help....

The "Black " supply wires go on the gold screws, The "White" wires (Neutral) go to the silver screws. The receptacles themselves Make up the "Feed thru loop" so no jumpers are necessary..tie the grounds together and your done...

The grounds need to be connected with a twist-on wire cap or another splicing device. You can only terminate one wire under the screws.
