Create and Present

Create and present.

Choose a Format
Now that you've defined your task, located sources, selected the best information, and organized it well, it's time to present it. You will use what you have learned to create an original product. In addition to writing a paper, you may be asked to present the results of your research to the class.Here are some ways you might communicate your new understanding and knowledge:
  • research paper
  • podcast or audio presentation
  • video
  • slide show (PowerPoint)
  • skit or dramatic presentation
  • write and sing a song
  • poster or artwork
  • create a work of historical fiction
Writing the Paper
Working from your outline, note cards and any other organizational tools, start writing. It may be helpful to go back to your KWHL chart to check that you have found answers to the things you wrote in the W column (what you Want to know), H column (how do you find out) and fill in the L column (what you've Learned). Don't forget to proofread! Here are some writing aids:
