This is a complete, three to four week research unit containing 16 pages worth of materials. Designed specifically for high school students, yet equally effective for an honors program at another level, this research project requires students to investigate an author of particular interest to them, crafting a properly formatted proposal, outline, and research paper, using MLA style, accurate parenthetical citations, and an error-free Works Cited page. This packet of materials includes a 2-page overview of the prompt, research specifications, suggested subjects, and checklist of student responsibilities; 1-page model of a research proposal on Stephen King, indicating topic description, sources found with proper MLA citations, and research goals; 3-page model of a research outline on C.S. Lewis; 9-page model of a research paper on Tom Clancy, including Works Cited page; and a 1-page grading evaluation. Check out thumbnails for examples of materials.
