Research Paper Time!

We are now one week into our month-long research paper. 
As you're researching your topic, remember this: a research paper is not a report because it has a narrative, driven by change, causes and effects.  If you don't focus on those important pieces of the puzzle, then your paper is just a report.

Basic Info:
Minimum 10 Sources
.gov | .edu | .org (not wiki), or books are the best sources of information
ONLY 3 .com sources allowed

Notes Check Dates: Wednesday, January 14; Friday, January 16
First Rough Draft Check: Friday, January 23rd
