Time to tackle research? Seventeen pages of structure and a fist full of grades for you and your students should help a LOT! This document focuses on choosing and organizing a controversial topic, producing a formal paper, and turning the paper into a colorful, powerful Powerpoint Presentation. (Paper section absolutely can stand alone.) PERFECT for an end-of-the-year showcase for your students. FORMS for paper portion include: Brainstorming grids, 2-page organizational Planner with target dates, done dates, and notes to the student; Analyzing your need for a mentor, Key words and phrases, Color-coding your sources for easy citation retrieval, 3-page position paper outline,and grading rubric.
