Your Mission: Choose a topic of interest on the Vietnam War. I have provided a list of various topics below these instructions. From that list choose one that appeals to you. I will consider other thoughtful topic choices not from the list, but any of these must be approved by me!
Second: Once you have your topic narrow it down. Avoid having such a broad topic that you are swimming with information. Make sure you have a clear and concise thesis that either shows the importance of your topic or takes a stand on your topic. For example if someone’s topic was the cause of the war his/her thesis would be: The essential cause of the Vietnam War was the instability of government relations between the North and South Vietnamese.
Third: You will write a 3-4 page research paper focused around your thesis statement and providing evidence to back up your thesis statement. You will use MLA format and follow the KHS Style Guide guidelines for formatting your paper. Attached is the rubric that I will use in assessing your paper. You are to ATTACH the rubric to your final paper for evaluation
Fourth: You will teach the class what you have learned about your topic in a well-constructed PowerPoint or Prezi-style presentation. Your presentation will be evaluated according to a separate rubric that you will receive before you begin planning your lesson. You have an obligation to your classmates to be attentive. Everyone will be responsible for evaluating each presentation and offering constructive feedback to presenters.
Along the way you will have check points for the various drafts. However, it is your responsibility to complete this paper and presentation. Some of the work will be finished outside of class. We will only have a few class periods to work on it in school. Plan accordingly!!
