Project Overview for Teachers

Online Research Paper Resource Great for Students

The following website is a wonderful about 90 page resource for helping students create a research project.  This website is earth science focused in content but I was still able to use and adapt it to my social studies research project by using the following pages:   14 - 20 and 27 - 32, 40 and 41, 45 - 56, 63 and 64, 71 - 73.
