Research Unit

Page history last edited by cduprey1616@... 9 years, 11 months ago



In all too short a time, you will leave North Rose-Wolcott High School and follow a path of your own choosing. But what path will you take? Work? College? the Military? What is next for you?


This research unit is designed to give you an opportunity to research a field of interest or career you're considering. You will spend time over the next few weeks finding information, talking with people in that field and making determinations as to whether this is a viable option for your future. You will develop three products by the end: a wiki page filled with information about your chosen field, a 4-6 page formal research paper, and a presentation you will deliver to the class (remember, you're the expert now!).


Below you will find all the materials you need to complete this unit.


Research topic sheet (must be completed and turned in before you begin your research). Open it and save it to your computer. Then type your answers into it, save, print and turn it in. Alternately, email it.


Research assignment -- an overview of the entire unit and what you're expected to produce at the end.


Questions that need to be answered as you do your research. Keep this file handy and check it often -- this is the guts of actual assignment!




REMEMBER: You are creating three products with the information you gather: a wiki page, a formal research paper, and a presentation to the class. Each of these carries equal weight in the final grade. This project will count as 30% of your overall 4th quarter average.
