You will create a product after researching a topic of your choice related to immigration. Your topic may be related to an issue in your novel or another reading from this class or social studies. You must be able to explain to me how the topic relates to immigration and why you feel it would be a good focus for your research.

The first thing you need to do is decide on your topic. Write one to two good paragraphs explaining to me how your proposed topic relates to immigration and why you are interested in it. I must approve your topic before you begin your research.

The second thing you will do is find three books or internet sources that provide information about your topic. You will use the research organizer form to take notes and record the information to cite your sources.

You will then synthesize, or combine, all of the things you have learned about your topic and create a product to present it to others. You will include a bibliography in your product.

Your choices for presenting the projects are:

Create a website

Create a photo story

Create a thin book

When you have completed all parts of the project you will turn in:
organizers containing the notes and citation information from your sources
evidence of planning for your final product
final product
bibliography
