Happy Researching, Inquisitive Investigators!
You will be looking at what you have learned
about the Modern Period for your research
project and composing an essay about
your favorite author from the
Modern period.
Step 1: Your Topic
Once you have an outline, it is time to start the drafting process. You can even use each of your outline bullets to make your first draft. Just take away the bullet points and turn it into paragraphs!
Step 5: Drafting your Essay
Before you start writing, you need to find
some good sources online about the author you choose. It is never a good idea to use Wikipedia as a source.

Choose websites that end in .edu, .org, or .gov... these are usually credible sources.
