This packet may be used for its individual parts or as an ongoing research project assignment.
The intent is for students to be able to track their development through the research process from coming up with a topic to weaving their information and ideas together in a rough draft.
The packet begins with a Student Acknowledgment Form and a page for choosing a topic and ends with drafting pages. In the past, I have designated a day each week (Wednesdays) as our "Research Days" where they complete the next step of the process. Students come up with focus questions to streamline their research and organize information by source, as directed on specific pages. A simplified template for an annotated bibliography is also provided. Once they reach the drafting stage, all they will need to do is edit, revise, and type a final draft.
