Winterset High School

For this project, you will be choosing a topic from your textbook for further research.  You will choose from the chapters in your book, however, you will not choose an entire chapter, but rather a topic from within the chapter.  For example, from the Psychology chapter, you might choose to research how the memory works, or from the economics chapter, you might choose to research the stock market.
For this project, you will be developing the following:

  • A 3 page research paper (in your own words) in which you will give general background information about the topic, as well as its effect, uses, operation, importance, etc (depending on the topic you choose)
  • An Mpower of at least 10 slides and 4 graphics related to your topic.  This will be presented to the class
  • An out line (in proper outline format) of your paper. This will be due two days before the presentations
  • Projects will be presented to the class. The date of presentations will be determined and announced.  Any student not ready/able (for any reason) to give his/her presentation on the assigned day will lose one letter grade for each day it is late.
  • Papers and outlines are to be typed
