English 11 Quarter 3 Update: The remainder of Quarter 3 will be spent on a multi-genre research project, which will be started on Friday, March, 1 2019 and will be due Monday, March 11, 2019. 

Here is a breakdown of the project for your reference:
Your assignment is to create a multi-genre research project that expresses your research and perspective on a person, event, or movement that embodies the American ideal of the pursuit of happiness. The following are required documents that you must include in your project. 

Cover Page (Original Title, Symbolic Visuals, Name, Date, Period)

Table of Contents (In order of appearance, the table of contents provides an overview of sections in the paper. Be sure to include the following in your table of contents: introduction, genre collection, conclusion, reflective end notes, and Works Cited page.)

Dear Reader Letter: (Introduction-This opening letter provides background information about your topic to your audience. It also introduces your thesis and how you threaded the collection of genres so the reader knows how to navigate through your paper.)

Collection of Genres (The body consists of a collection of genres created to help your reader understand your subject and thesis. This is where the multi-genre aspect of the paper is displayed via a minimum of six different genres threaded together with a metaphor or motif.)

Conclusion (What have I learned about the topic from this research project? What did you learn about the process from working on this project?)

Reflective End Notes (What genres did you include in your writing and why? Assemble your Reflective End Notes so that the genres appear in sequential order and contain the following information:   Genre #, Title, and Genre Identified
Rationale: Explain why this particular genre was selected. Reflection: How are the facts presented in the creative interpretation?)

Works Cited Page (Provide your list of sources for the research conducted. Consult the MLA Handbook or style manual preferred by your teacher or an online writing lab for instructions on format.)
