The Multi-Genre research paper is an excellent way to get students excited about research. It blends creativity with traditional research methods. Students choose a topic or you assign one. STEM, anyone?
Students conduct research, narrow a topic, formulate a thesis, argue their thesis using a variety of genres, cite their sources, and generate a works cited page.
The genres included in my example are short story, tabloid cover, letter to the editor, sonnet, and crossword puzzle.
This project can be modified for use in any secondary subject. It encourages students to research, synthesize, and cite information.
Here’s what you’ll get:
- Table of contents
- 7 handouts
- 4 worksheets
- 14 page example
- A PowerPoint Presentation on writing a thesis
This is a creative and engaging way to do a research project!
