Instead of writing a full-sized research paper, you will do a mini research project to help you get comfortable doing research. The project will be based solely on internet sources . You will do the following:
Choose a researchable question and form a thesis about it.
Go on a WebQuest to find information about one aspect of your researchable question.
Use the writing process to help you organize and express your ideas.
You know from the section before that it is important to keep track of your sources of information. You also understand the importance of both in-text citations and the Works Cited page
This is not a linear process. Your thesis is the answer to your researchable question. In the process of doing your research you may find that your research supports a different response than you originally thought it would. Once you read and learn more about your topic, you will find different points of view. You may decide to change your thesis based upon the research you did.
