Research and a Road Trip Research and a Road Trip Presentation Transcript

  • Road Trip Mr. Sheehy’s analogy to the research paper
  • How can a road trip be like a research paper ?
  • Isn’t that an insult to the coolest American experience, the road trip ?
  • Listen, it makes sense.
  • Both involve a process . Both involve sharing your discoveries.
  • Need more?
  • Okay, let’s take a look.
  • Step One
  • Decision time.
  • Where are you going?
  • It’s like choosing a topic ,
  • Or creating a thesis .
  • Step Two
  • Prepare.
  • Plan.
  • Collect info on what you want to see.
  • Sound like research ? It should.
  • Step Three
  • Start packing.
  • You’re doing more than packing, though.
  • You’re organizing,
  • Making sure nothing ends up in the wrong place.
  • So when it’s time to go, you’re ready.
  • For this, teachers use words like
  • categorize ,
  • and organize ,
  • and tools like
  • note cards
  • and outlines .
  • Step Four
  • Hit the road,
  • See everything,
  • send a postcard,
  • & take pictures.
  • It’s like a report .
  • But if anyone is to follow you
  • It has to make sense.
  • That’s why there is
  • Step Five
  • Leave a trail
  • that can be followed.
  • So if your friends want,
  • They can eat where you ate,
  • or not,
  • and do what you did,
  • or not.
  • Teachers call this
  • Writing citations
  • And making a works cited .
  • So let’s be honest , then.
  • It’s hard work.
  • It would be easier to hand your friends a pile of brochures and a map,
  • Or to hand in to your teachers a list of url’s. www.flickr.com/photos/33264067@N00/243089839 www.flickr.com/photos/64264362@N00/13227861 http://find.galegroup.com/menu/commonmenu.do?userGroupName=sdln_sds&action=updateCspList&searchTerm=maple&DB=GVRL-0_SPJ.SP00_JRC_DC_GVRL.sdbc_GVRL.sdec_GVRL.sdlnhtc_GVRL.sdlnlgc_GVRL.sdlnmc_GVRL.sdlnsc_STOJ_STOM_ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maple www.flickr.com/photos/62528187@N00/302328043 www.flickr.com/photos/46555636@N00/455282196 www.flickr.com/photos/12754005@N00/399020839 www.flickr.com/photos/82777265@N00/113488168 www.flickr.com/photos/68799045@N00/57290754 www.flickr.com/photos/15261067@N00/208322666
  • But your friends want to hear what YOU thought about your trip,
  • And your readers want to hear what you think about your topic.
  • And in the end,
  • it’s worth it.
  • Just think of it
  • as a road trip.
