Brain Report Assignment

This is the culminating project for our brain unit.  You have spent a lot of time learning about the brain and now is the time to put everything together.  You will use your notes, handouts, and assessments to help you write your report.  You are able to use the computers at lunch or recess or schedule a time before school to work.  When you turn in your final copy you must also turn in you RAFT,  four plus three square, rough draft, and revisions.  Class time will be alloted for these activities so that I can provide help, but if you are absent you will have to complete them on your own time.  Your final copy may be typed or handwritten. E-mailed papers must be printed out before the deadline so plan accordingly.  Remember deadlines are always closer than they appear. The sample papers we shared in class are available for you to review.  I am looking forward to reading your papers.
