    Historical Research Project 

    Step 1:  Research your history maker and find his or her contributions towards the American Revolution. Based on the research determine two learner profile traits that match.

    Step 2:  Develop your inquiry (research) questions using Bloom’s taxonomy. Create at least one question for each tier of Bloom’s taxonomy.  Refer to the Bloom’s graphic organizer to formulate tiered research questions reflective of your topic. 

    Step 3:  Use the Inquiry Questions checklist to self-evaluate before submitting your questions for evaluation and approval. 

    Step 4:  Use questions to direct library research using at least three different types of library resources (non-fiction print resources, encyclopedia, Internet, etc.).  Record  notes and citations using Note Card graphic organizer. Use the checklist to self-evaluate.

    Step 5:  Transfer information from note cards into a Main Idea graphic organizer or outline  divided into three parts:  Introduction, Body and Conclusion.  Use the checklist to self-evaluate.

    Step 6:  Create a visual representation that includes the final copy form of your research: Hanger Moblie– History Makers Name, 8 relevant pictures or illustrations supporting the learner profile trait and/or contributions to the American Revolution, student name, class
