This research project contains a 5-page handout for students to fill in as they select and research a specific topic in biotechnology. The handout guides them through finding at least 1 print and 3 online sources of information while using APA citations. It then has them build an outline of their presentation. I have used it with Biology classes and Forensics classes. Students use print and online resources to find information about their topic and then create short presentations using any web 2.0 tool such as Prezi, Voki, Thinglink, Padlet, etc. to introduce their classmates to the topic they have researched. Students submit their assignments by sharing the links to their presentation with their teacher and can then have a showcase of student work with the class!
The handout is included as both a PDF and an editable word document for your use. APA citation formats are included in the student handout and a detailed rubric that is aligned to common core ELA standards.
