CASE STUDY #5: High School Outline
Organizing a term paper can be a daunting process for any high school student. Amy had to write a 16 to 20 page term paper for history class comparing the rules and regulations of various monarchies of Europe. “Collecting and researching this information alone was a big process, but organizing it and making it useful was even harder. I was able to make different outlines for each source while my friends were using little 3×5 cards. I used a few different outline types but mostly the indent type and the concept maps.” Amy received a 97 on her term paper and she reported that the actual writing was the easy part because her research and other needed information is so accessible.
