AP Research Project
A Contemporary International News Event
STEP ONE - CHOOSING A TOPIC & POSTING A RESEARCH QUESTION
Prior to beginning the research for the essay component of the research project, you will be asked to post a research question on Wikispaces. The details of when, where, and how to post will be discussed at a later date, so there is no advantage to attempting to post early. However, you may begin thinking about a current (SPRING 2017 or after), international issue that you find interesting by reading and watching the news.
Login to Wikispaces
Please post your research question on the wiki in the thread indicated by Mr. Phillips & sign all of your wiki posts to make it simpler for Mr. Phillips and your peers to see who has commented so that duplicate questions/topics can be easily avoided.
Students who fail to sign their posts or to follow directions may forfeit credit for wiki participation.
