PROCEDURES:

1)  Each student will choose 6 subjects from the GK list (2 from People, 2 from Places, and 2 from Things), then begin hunting for the information needed in order to fully and accurately define and analyze each subject—using three sources minimum of, one of which must be from a traditional source (an actual book or a periodical of note; Wikepedia is not an acceptable source).  Bibliograpic info must be recorded  MLA format, 

 

 

2) Once individual research is complete, each student will compose an essay in which you explore your process of research and what you learned as a result.  You will focus specifically on three (3) of the six (6) “items,” one from each section.
