BELLRINGER: FRESHMAN TECHNOLOGY- Research Projects and Paper Topic Selection Form.
One of the expectations you will have as a high school student is the writing of papers. You will receive these assignments in many types of classes, from Business to Social Studies to Language Arts. For our upcoming Freshman Technology project, you will learn how to do basic research on a topic and how to properly format a paper, complete with citations.

For a topic, you will be researching the beginning, evolution and current state of one of your FAVORITE THINGS, as outlined in your chart from the first couple of days of class. Please select a PRODUCT from the outside ring of your FAVORITE THINGS CHART completed a few days ago. I recommend selecting a topic that you enjoy, but also one for which you will be able to gather plenty of historical information.

(Choose your topic wisely! This topic will be the basis of most of the work done for the rest of the quarter in this class!)

Don't pick a topic that you aren't really interested in, you will be spending a LOT of time working on this topic. Also, don't pick your VERY favorite thing ever, because you might get tired of it soon!
