Chapter Ten: Research Project
Due Date: March 13, 2013
The textbook, World Cultures and Geography, barely touched on the civilization of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome; two significant cultures. Choose a topic from among the following choices. Research the topic and write a three paragraph report about the topic chosen. The first paragraph should address what the topic is and why it was chosen. The second paragraph should detail the topic’s significance, importance, and other details that made it noteworthy at the time. In the third paragraph write about what was learned and why it is significant today. Please track the resources that were used for this report. At the end of the report list the sources used for this report. Wikipedia is not a valid source for this scholarly paper. It is important to summarize what was read, and be sure to write the report in the student’s own words unless directly quoting a source. In writing the paper, the usual formal writing standards apply. Two versions of the report are to be submitted. The usual word processed document is to be submitted, which may include a photograph or (cut-and-past is acceptable) reproduction. The second version is an electronic copy which may be submitted via flash drive or e-mail attachment.
