Informative Research HELA9 - Binger: Home


Choose an issue affecting teens and conduct research over the topic, culminating in an informative research paper.  You must use a minimum of three sources:  two database and one website.

Your notecards should address three topics:

  1. The history of the issue.  How did it start?  How has this changed over time?
  2. What problem does this present for our society?  Why is this concerning?
  3. What is a solution that could help this?  (Choose one to focus on.)
