Research Project Guidelines (will be updated as we finish each step):
On Tuesday the 27th, you should have submitted the name of the utopia you would like to research into the form (see link below).
Once you have done that, you should begin to compile your research onto note cards.
Ultimately, you will consider all of the evidence you have gathered and decide--is the utopia you've chosen a GOOD place to live or a TERRIBLE place to live?
Your goal over the next few days is to find your information.
1. You will need to find at least 20 pieces of information. That is the bare minimum. Each piece of information should go on a notecard.
--Do not plagarize...either paraphrase the information (put it into your own words) or directly quote it!
--It is not required, but it will make your later work easier if you classify your notecards into "pros" and "cons" or "positives" and "negatives."
2. You will need to make your notecards using at least 3 good sources. Again, this is the very minimum. Wikipedia is a GREAT starting point--it is excellent at directing you to other websites, but you may not use it as one of your three.
--Tripadvisor note...this is not a very unbiased source; it is mostly opinions of individuals and therefore not totally reliable but it may prove useful to have some of these opinions when considering the merits of your utopia. You may use a review as a source (you can't use three reviews as all three of your sources though...)
3. I'm not able to open word right now, so I don't have access to the sample notecard we used in class on Tuesday. For guidance on Wednesday you can search for MLA guidelines on citing sources (there is a link on my page as well-under "Web Resources") and/or ask a fellow classmate who may have already written some notecards. On Thursday, we can go over correct citation guidelines again--don't worry.
4. If, in your searching, you find another utopia you would like to research you may definitely do that! You just want to make sure that you are able to find enough information. I heard that there is a cruise ship utopia out there which might be worth looking into...
****Update: Three-Column Graphic Organizer useful for sorting your data into categories:
