If I’m just researching and writing about a topic from the past, how is this any different from a research paper?

Simply put—your MGRP will be about a topic that has been researched before, but that is still quite RELEVANT---a topic that SHOULD matter to people today---something that made a difference (good or bad) in the lives of Orwell and Golding 70 years ago and that still influences our lives today. (It’s up to you to be creative enough to demonstrate this!)



To communicate to others just how relevant---you are tasked with taking this potentially over-researched, banal topic, and presenting it in several, different, creative forms rather than the standard 5-7 pp research paper in five paragraph format ---so that YOU and your friends, relatives, peers --(not just your English teacher) ---can appreciate and understand its significance in their lives.

How do I begin?

  1. First, read your chosen novel---either Orwell’s 1984 or Golding’s Lord of the Flies

  2. Don’t forget to keep recording quotations and analyses in your 20 dialectical journal entries—due in June. This assignment takes time, but it WILL help you to be a more reflective, active, and critical reader.

  3. Next, formulate a research question. (do this even before you finish reading if necessary)
