Research Reports
Projects





The first research project we will do is a personal research
project about each student's family history.  This will be a
short term (3 weeks) project during which students will
interview family members to trace their family tree as far
back as possible and to collect oral history from family
members.  Students will also be encouraged to describe or
photograph (or scan) family artifacts.  Students will also
create a distinctive time line of their family.

The major research project of the year will be
a written report and an accompanying Power
Point Presentation on a Nation of the World.  
See
www.sjteach.org/country.html for details.
The 3rd Trimester Research Project,
for my Social Studies Classes only,
will be to do a Biography of a
Historical Character of Importance
and to create either a poster,
multi-media presentation or other
means of showing acquired learning.
