This research paper is designed to test students' writing skills and instill research skills. This resource is versatile and can be modified as the teacher sees fit (i.e. require an additional formal annotated bibliography for upper grade levels to show sources).
Personally, I use this an option for an end-of-year research project with my students before summer break. It's engaging and thought provoking to keep students interested before their summer break. Included is an easy-to-follow rubric to be clear on what areas students will be assessed.
