When I was doing my student teaching, my Co-operating Teacher assigned me with The Term Paper (Jealous?). I sat down one weekend and literally "Wrote the Book" on how to do a Term Paper. The tutorial included The 4 styles of writing, how to do note card/bib cards, outlining and MLA. The Tutorial also includes assignments, grading scales and a rubric.
This assignment will give you a day-by-day set of instructions. It should take your students approximately a month to complete.
It is 10 years later and I am offering it to you. You can use pieces of it or use it in its entirety.
For the LOW PRICE of $9.99, you can have your weekend back!
