Lads and Lassies:

Here is a link to the rubric that will be used to evaluate the quality of your research.

Please refer back to the rubric to make sure you are completing all six research steps. The process (in this case) is more important than the product. Notice that the end task (which are the paragraphs on your topic) only receive one grade, whereas the process steps encompass ten grades. You do the math. The following link will take you to the checklist that will help organize your work should you loose your copy.

Therefore, ignoring the steps and writing your paragraphs with no organization whatsoever will not only diminish our project, but result in a demotion of your grade to "landlubber" status.
