      • Chapter 6 Mastery Tests 1 and 2
      • Write one paragraph based on the organizational pattern assigned to your group and one based on a pattern of your choice about a topic of your choice. Use a graphic organizer before writing.
  • 13. Research Project
    • Begin your project. Choose a topic, visit the library and ask the librarian how to get information on your topic.
    • This is an extremely important skill to have in college—one that crosses disciplines and will help you most in life no matter what you decide to do.
    • No one can stop you if you can get the right information.
