Choose a person to research.

Get your thesis approved and then move on with the research to prove your thesis.
The Paper must be 2.5-3.5 pages in length and written with adherence to the Cherokee Research method. ( which can be found on the Media Center Website)
The Paper must prove your thesis and not simply be a report on a reformer.

The Paper can be submitted early or you can conference with me after school PRIOR to the due date to make sure you are on the right track. ( I strongly recommend you at least stay after school.)
