  • 1. Road Trip Mr. Sheehy’s analogy to the research paper
  • 2. How can a road trip be like a research paper ?
  • 3. Isn’t that an insult to the coolest American experience, the road trip ?
  • 4. Listen, it makes sense.
  • 5. Both involve a process . Both involve sharing your discoveries.
  • 6. Need more?
  • 7. Okay, let’s take a look.
  • 8. Step One
  • 9. Decision time.
  • 10. Where are you going?
  • 11. It’s like choosing a topic ,
  • 12. Or creating a thesis .
  • 13. Step Two
  • 14. Prepare.
  • 15. Plan.
  • 16. Collect info on what you want to see.
  • 17. Sound like research ? It should.
  • 18. Step Three
  • 19. Start packing.
  • 20. You’re doing more than packing, though.
  • 21. You’re organizing,
  • 22. Making sure nothing ends up in the wrong place.
  • 23. So when it’s time to go, you’re ready.
  • 24. For this, teachers use words like
  • 25. categorize ,
  • 26. and organize ,
  • 27. and tools like
  • 28. note cards
  • 29. and outlines .
  • 30. Step Four
  • 31. Hit the road,
  • 32. See everything,
  • 33. send a postcard,
  • 34. & take pictures.
  • 35. It’s like a report .
  • 36. But if anyone is to follow you
  • 37. It has to make sense.
  • 38. That’s why there is
  • 39. Step Five
  • 40. Leave a trail
  • 41. that can be followed.
  • 42. So if your friends want,
  • 43. They can eat where you ate,
  • 44. or not,
  • 45. and do what you did,
  • 46. or not.
  • 47. Teachers call this
  • 48. Writing citations
  • 49. And making a works cited .
  • 50. So let’s be honest , then.
  • 51. It’s hard work.
  • 52. It would be easier to hand your friends a pile of brochures and a map,
  • 53. 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
  • 54. But your friends want to hear what YOU thought about your trip,
  • 55. And your readers want to hear what you think about your topic.
  • 56. And in the end,
  • 57. it’s worth it.
  • 58. Just think of it
  • 59. as a road trip.
