updated Feb 17th

Another update:
If you are having difficulty staying within the word count (1,000-1,500) you can write the procedure section using bullet points rather than full sentences.
*The materials section CANNOT be written using bullet points

Vital Reminders as you prepare to submit your Internal Assessment (Friday, Feb 19th):
  • check the format of your pages (title page, appendix, etc...)
  • check your wordcount - 1,000 - 1,500 - This only includes the Intro, Methods, Results, and Discussion sections.
  • Site your references! Use MLA formatting
  • Use turnitin.com to check for plagiarism (do this before you turn in your final draft)
  • A paper copy needs to be turned in for me to grade
  • You also need to submit the assessment to turnitin.com
See me with any questions or if you need help editing your paper to meet the word limit.
