Students will write from the point of view of a character in time. They will determine the mode of writing for the final product.

Teacher Introduction

Tired of the same old reseach papers?  Nights sitting up correcting plageristic accounts of third person trite!  This research project engages the students by asking them to conduct research and then write from the personna of one of the characters.  Students have a chance to work with their class members and learn the skill of cooperative learning.  The final products are varied and engaging to read.  Students are not short-changed by this research project; in fact, their ability to conduct inquiry improves as well as their understanding of different modes of writing.
