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 using Google classroom.
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 2018 or after), international issue that you find interesting by reading and watching the news.
Posting Research Questions with Google Classroom
Please post your research question in Google classroom when Mr. Phillips requests it and be sure to look at the posts of your peers to avoid duplicate questions/topics. There will be a window of time to post your question to receive credit. Be sure to keep track of when your question must be posted.
STEP TWO - TO COMPOSE A RESEARCH ESSAY AND CONSTRUCT A WEBSITE
C. TO CONSTRUCT A WEBSITE...
Here is a web-based description of the assignment, which you should create with Weebly and link to your digital portfolio. The samples below present exceptional examples of final projects.
The completed website should be published a few weeks after the due date of the research essay.
