Let students practice research skills to learn about a decade of time. Students will choose a decade, and research topics ranging from fashion and music to major political events from that time period. Students will synthesize their research in a slide presentation. This works well for students who are new to research writing or as a quick review of research writing.
Page 1- Assignment sheet. Includes detailed instructions, a student checklist, and a slide by slide outline that students can follow to know what to research and include in their presentation.
Page 2- (originally intended to be printed back to back) An in-text citation cheat sheet. This product was created in 2018 and follows the owl.purdue website instructions for online in-text citations. It was also created with the intention to be used with students who are new to in-text citations or doing a simple review of in-text citations. You may need to adapt this portion to best fit the needs of your students.
This product was originally created for 7th graders. They thoroughly enjoyed researching and finding pictures for each part of the project and presenting to their group. This could easily be adapted for a high or lower level. It worked well at helping them get their feet wet and introduce them to research writing.
