Students will choose a topic from what we see in the news headlines. From this they will research numerous reliable websites such as .gov, .edu.

From the sources chosed, they will need to find graphs, statistics to state their position and why this is important in society. For example, the topic may be that libraries should exist or revamp what they do to help meet society's need.

They will need to type an outline and send it to me through email or google docs, I will provide immediate feedback and we can conference as well.

Through the proces of writing their paper, I will meet with each students and disuss the process with them, or help them in anyway.
