You will be writing a paper about a particular person and/or event that made a huge impact in history. Your paper will be answering your topic's historical question by using sources to support at least two claims. In addition to quotes from resources, you will also have to include one image in your paper. You will be learning how to cite all of these sources as part of this research project.
We are organizing this research project based on The Indian Prairie School District's High School Research Handbook PLAN Research Process, which is a joint project between the Metea, Neuqua, and Waubonsie High School LMCs.
