Now that you have been introduced to 16 women of accomplishment in American history, I would like you to compose a research essay about the one woman you admire most from the Prezi presentation. Your paper will answer the following questions . . . PERSONAL LIFE
What was this woman’s name at birth? Where and when was she born?
What was her life like as a child and young adult?
What aspects of her early life may have led her to the field of study in which she became successful and well-known?
What was her personal life like as an adult? Did she marry? Did she have children?
If this person is no longer alive, when and where did she die?

At what point did she decide to go into her chosen field? How did she prepare for this field?
What contributions did she make to this field and to society? Why was this work important?
In what way did her work and achievements impact American history? Provide specific examples.

What do you think everyone should know about this notable woman?
What do you think was her most impressive achievement, and why?
How has this woman inspired you? THE PROCESS OF WRITING A RESEARCH PAPER

Select the topic.

Decide exactly what the arguable/provable point of your paper will be (thesis statement).

Collect information about your topic from several sources.

Organize this information into a logical, detailed form (topic and sentence outlines).

Write your rough draft and type it. Save it on the computer.

Revise, make corrections, proofread, and check your paper against the grading rubric. An important aspect of your paper is to give credit where credit is due. Since most of the information you write comes from other sources, you must appropriately cite these sources. We will use parenthetical notes instead of footnotes or endnotes. With parenthetical notes, you give the bibliographic information by using parentheses after the given information. Plagiarism will result in an “F” and be reported to the Administration for further action. RESEARCH PAPER REQUIREMENTS:

The BODY of the paper should be 3-5 double-spaced, typed pages using font size 12 and Times New Roman script. Your paper should have one-inch margins on each side. Two full pages and a partial third page will not meet the requirements for this paper.

Follow the format in the MLA HANDBOOK FOR WRITERS OF RESEARCH PAPERS. The library has several copies. You can also visit the MLA web site for help: www.mla.org.

Minimum of 3 sources, including at least one book. The remaining sources can be any type, including the Internet. Check with your teacher to make sure your Internet sources are reliable and credible.

The final paper is worth 150 points: format—50 points; structure and grammar—50 points; content—50 points. The following rubric will be used HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT 2: Create an interactive presentation using Prezi. Your presentation should model my Prezi, graphically illustrating the findings from your research paper. You will present your completed Prezi to the class. Refer to the Prezi rubric for requirements. Be creative and have fun :-) Sources http://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/schools/paintbranchhs/Houses/Parks.html http://history.missouri.edu/areas/genderwomen.html http://www.ada.gov/pubs/10thrpt.htm http://blogs.saintanselmcollege.net/2007/10/ http://ohsweb.ohiohistory.org/ohiopix/Image.cfm?ID=3005 http://www.rmutphysics.com/charud/naturemystery/sci3/boeing/timeline.htm http://www.vam.ac.uk/images/image/4107-popup.html http://www.valdezlink.com/re/jackie.htm http://www.nps.gov/anti/historyculture/clarabarton.htm http://www.studyguide.org/research_paper_guide.htm http://www.oyez.org/justices/ruth_bader_ginsburg
