Research Project Expectations and Points

We expect that you will spend the time in the library/lab being:

·         Respectful (of Mrs. Loffredo, library materials, each other)

·         Quiet

·         Productive

·         On-Task


Written Work: 20 points total – Due on Monday, Sept. 23

You will have to keep track, type and turn in your list of 15+ facts.  These facts should match the facts you present in class!  This is worth 5 points.  

You will have to have a typed script for  your Voice Thread presentation with your citations/works cited for Mrs. Golden/Mrs. Nance/Mr. Chugg before you start looking for pictures and recording. This is worth 15 points.


Presentation: 35 points total

Your Voice Thread should have 10-15 fact-based slides in it, based on the MINIMUM of 15+ collected facts that you collect as you research.

You should have an introductory slide, with your topic on it.

Your last slide should have the citations/sources for your research.  The citations should be correct – and in correct MLA format.

You will be scored on how interesting and engaging your presentation is.  Problems during the presentation (that can’t be blamed on the computer AT THE TIME) will be subtracted from your score.

Your vocal quality – pace, volume, clarity – will impact your grade.  Record carefully – and re-record when necessary.
