This is an expository-based research project; I will have an argumentative-based research project available shortly.
End of semester/year projects got you down? Never fear! This research project bundle is for teachers of British Lit, but you can use the included .docx file to modify the research topic to better fit what your students are working on.
Included in This Bundle:
* Introductory Article: "The Modernist Experiment," to help students define/delineate modernity for the purpose of their research

- Highly detailed step-by-step instructions for how to complete a research project
- Explanations of all three project components

This bundle has EVERYTHING you need to teach effective research, drafting, writing, and reflection skills, and it is color coded for ease of use. You can break it up, or print it all at once. I print the whole thing, punch it, and place it into a cheap 3-prong folder that students can work out of for the duration of the project.
