Students will be writing a research paper and an annotated bibliography.
The iSearch paper is a four-step process.
1. Develop a research question based on the broad topics the class has been discussing: happiness and success.
2. Walk us through the triumphs and tribulations of your research journey.
3. Describe your research results by quoting, paraphrasing, summarizing, and analyzing the information.
4. Reflect on how the information you found confirmed, complicated, and/or challenged your understanding of the topic you chose. You will also reflect on how others might benefit from this information.
Audience: Your audience is your classmates and teacher. Your goal is to show us a new perspective on your topic. Therefore, you should provide enough information in each step of your iSearch paper in order to help us follow along with your research journey. Imagine you are writing to someone unfamiliar with the topic.
