Research Paper

Recommended Posts

Wow, same age and grade and I've done maybe one paper all year...

I guess if its pick anything, pick something you like and if you can't decide, put them in a hat and pick one from there, thats what I've done a couple times.

If you should happen to select the topic of our Sixteenth President, please promise me you'll do a better job than this.

Seriously though, you've been given a great opportunity here. I can't ever remember having much latitude in selecting subject matters for a research paper, especially in 8th grade (I think that's so the teachers didn't have so many references to check when grading). Find a subject that interests you and run with it. Your existing interest in that subject should give you the focus and the momentum to put together something of which you will be really proud and might actually get a good grade for as well!

Good luck!

You should definitely do your paper on sanskrit.

("Sanskrit? You're majoring in a five thousand year old dead language? Hmmm... Latin, best I can do.")

I knew that bit about the Kleenex, but the gas station thing was totally new.
