This is day three of a five day unit teaching students strong research skills for a "white paper" style research paper (can be modified for any pro­con research assignment). For the purpose of this assignment, the white paper is an argumentative piece which introduces a problem and argues a solution to that problem. In this team­taught lesson, students will continue to learn that researching is not a linear process. Students will learn to adjust their topic based on what information is available (with their pre­search). Focus will be on finding good search terms and thinking outside of the box to gather evidence.

*This lesson plan is adaptable for various projects involving technology.  This is a general lesson plan used for our Tech Fun Fridays. Students who are caught up in all core classes and not missing any assignemnts are given time to do their own research on a topic that they are interested in. They must conduct research, create a presentation to compile their research, cite sources, create a project (3D printing, animation, etc.), carry about that project including taking and editing photos of their final project to include at the end of their presentation and then practice their public speaking by presenting to the class. (This covers many core standards depending on what grade you teach. Please reference the standards you are working with to determine which ones fit this lesson.)
