Product Description
When I was thinking about my junior research paper, I decided I wanted to motivate and interest my students to really get involved in this project. Therefore, I decided the students would do a multigenre project involving their Bucket Lists - or the things they'd like to do before they die. So, they chose from a large list of possibilities (such as an African Safari) and ended up writing pieces (such as Itineraries, Ransom notes and invitations) for each item and creating a presentation based on their Bucket Lists. We did our final presentation in the library and it was a huge hit. They students also used MLA format, citing their sources and creating a bibliography. They still learned about research while doing something they actually enjoyed.
