Welcome to Your Multi-Genre Research Study!

Research Requirements:

  • Start with Google:

Multi-Genre Project Menu:
  • Directions: You will be selecting a minimum of two completely different written formats to display your newly discovered research. These options entail creative choices to demonstrate research and new understandings regarding a self-selected topic. Think through your choices carefully and be prepared to plan out each written format prior to your drafting stage. Be prepared to show off your work during a Gallery Walk toward the end of our unit of study.
