Research Plan:

Fill out the Research Plan after the first day of research and decide which subtopics each partner will cover. Indicate the method for research and explain how you will organize your information.

 

References Page:

Turn in a reference page in APA format after the research in the LMC. This MUST be updated if you change any sources because all the in-text citations must match the sources on the reference page. No unused citations should be listed. This will include at least four credible sources with no more than half as websites (no personal web pages or blogs). Other sources include databases, (found on eResources) books, and personal interviews. Your group will not pass without an accurate references page.

 

Evidence of note-taking organization:

During the time in the lab preparing the Google Presentation, each student will meet with the teacher to show the research plan was followed before you begin creating your presentation (so keep your articles, notes, and anything else!). You must be checked off with your teacher before starting to create your presentation.

 

Google Presentation with in-text citations:

Each pair will prepare and present a 10-18 (depends on number of group members) slide Google Presentation, with each partner making and presenting his/her own 5-6 slides (adjust for more or less members of the group).  Each slide should follow the Rule of 6 (maximum of 6 bullets per slide, maximum of 6 words per bullet), be properly cited, and include pictures.
