Looking for a way to teach the skills necessary for a research paper, but don't have the time for a separate research class? Here's your answer!
This single document includes: a model research paper activity, 5 research paper "steps," and a rubric. The topics for the research paper connect to the concept of cultural diffusion, but you could certainly adapt them to whatever topic you wish to focus on or teach. The key to this guide is the process--not the content. In other words, this is a product that you can purchase once and adapt multiple times.
Note: If you are going to use this product as it is currently designed, you will need the following books; A History of the World in 100 Objects (ISBN: 978-0-670-02270-0) and World History (ISBN: 978-0-7854-6405-1). You will also need a video for Part A on page 1: http://www.howcast.com/videos/873-how-to-research-a-paper/
