This is a fantastic way to increase interest in interviewing, researching, and writing a paper: design it as a gift for someone!
Students practice interviewing someone they want to give a present to for any occasion. The person being interviewed must choose a famous person in order to conduct research on them successfully. Students will follow the outline - ALL EDITABLE! - to complete a four paragraph research paper. The end step is to print a picture of the researched person as a cover page for the gift.
Students will love this and get their feet wet in what a research paper is all about. Edit and Enjoy!
