Summer school has just ended, and I wanted to share with our Grizzly researchers a research project my summer school students undertook: the multigenre research project. Students were allowed to choose their topics, and indeed, our topics were diverse: we had everything from John Elway to cardiac disorders to The Crusade to current events! Take a look at my current resource page on teaching the multigenre paper:
Here you will find:
- My handouts in PDF format
- Blog reflections from the students
- Sample papers written by real high school students
- My favorite resources on teaching and learning with multigenre papers
What do you think? My students responded quite positively to the entire project…do you think that you as a student researcher would be interested in doing a research project like this in 2008-09? The multigenre research approach is great for general research papers as well as literary based research papers…participate in the poll below and let me know what you think!
