  • Opinion or Research?

    Tell me what is wrong with this ‘research’

  • Our project is about the lockers in school. They are too small to fit backpacks and backpacks are really heavy. Heavy backpacks are causing back problems in students because sometimes there are 4 heavy books in a backpack. If lockers were twice as big we wouldn’t have to carry so many books around.


Research

Research…

  • So…how do we figure this out?


Research1

Research…

  • Research should share facts and data that others have discovered. Research helps prove that your project problem is one that should be fixed or solved.


Research2

Research…

  • Your research should be summarized in your own words unless you use quotation marks and cite the original source. No plagiarism!

  • “According to”….could become your favorite phrase


Research3

Research…

  • Your paper needs 3 sources.

  • 2 of these sources may be internet or book / magazine sources, but one has to be from an interview with an expert.

  • This interview should be in person, by phone, or via an e-mail. Include the date of the interview in your sources.
