A summary of the project:

Students will research their I-Search question using print and internet sources and create a digital presentation using PowerPoint or Google Docs presentation software. Students are collecting their research on our I-Search 2008 class wiki. Later, students will present their findings to other students who sign up to attend their talk. The presentation slides will be turned in to portfolios for a writing grade.

The I-Search presentation is due April 25, and will be presented Monday morning, April 28. Students should be adding information to their Google Docs presentation by this time.
