Day 2: Students nail down their choice and bring the parent letter home
Day 3: Collect parent signatures (located on the parent letter)
Days 4-9: Students begin research/note taking
Days 10-12: Students organize notes into outline format

Throughout the rough draft/final draft phase, students should begin working on their visual aid. Have students sign up for their presentation and watch the excitement grow!
