Finish Parts 1-5 and FINALIZE your Works Cited List.
For this section of the project,
tell the story of your search for the answers to your questions: what questions
you had and where you found the answers or why you weren't able to answer
them, what new questions arose as you searched. Be sure to cite your sources
after direct quotes (in quotation marks) or facts that you found. Also
be sure to discuss your primary research (interview, survey, etc.) This
section will form the main part of your work: 3-5 pages.
SAMPLE PARAGRAPH FROM "MY SEARCH
AND WHAT I FOUND OUT"
(Works Cited page follows)
On the CD-ROM program in our library, I found an article about chemistry that said "molecules lose
their negativity as they move through the solution" ("Chemistry" 52). Another scientist, Allen R. Mueller,
said these solutions become positively charged in the process (Mueller 42). According to Mueller, this is
a "chemical reaction" (42). I found that this process is very useful to industry in the manufacturing of
metals (Designs 73). From an encyclopedia article I learned that the by-products of this process are
beneficial to both society and business ("Metals" 394). Metals such as beryllium and copper are refined
in this process (395). Positively-charged solutions are also used in the production of zirconium (Zeikel ).
According to my science teacher,
"there will yet be many advances made in this field" (Shaw).
