Lost in the Pacific Ring of Fire – The Last Week!!!

It’s your last week to work, so how’s it going with the Lost in the Pacific Ring of Fire Project? Remember, first and foremost this is a CHEMISTRY project. You must talk about all 23 items – why they would be good to use or why you would not want to use them. NEVER ever say, I had no use for the item.

Here are a few other things to remember – it’s a long list to review, but very important, so READ IT ALL! TWICE!

  1. Your journal/research paper must be in general manuscript form:
    •  Must have a title page – Google it!
    •  Typed, double spaced
    •  Last name and page number on top right corner of each page
    •  Each of the major three sections of your paper should start on a new page
    •  Each item in its own “mini-paragraph”. Multiple items used to do or make one thing can be included in the same paragraph
  1. Every single item must have its own in text citation. Even if you use the same source for two items in a row, EACH ITEM must have its own separate in text citation.
  2. Highlight each one of the main 23 items the first time you mention in your paper. If you use the item again later in your journal for a different reason, highlight it again. You do not highlight your in text text citation.
  3. Illustrations must include in text citations at the bottom of the actual illustration. And don’t forget to include it in the Works Cited!
  4. In text citations should match the first thing you have written in each entry of your Works Cited. Never include the URL in your in text citation. Instead you will the in text citation will be the author or Internet article title, or the name of the book or the dictionary entry, etc.
  5. Never, never, never include JUST the URL for Internet sites in your Works Cited. You must include the other important information as well. Follow the MLA guidelines Purdue Owl if you have any questions. And don’t forget to reverse indent your Works Cited!
  6. Your copied sources in Google slides should be in the order that the items they refer to occur in your paper. If you have the same source for different items, you must have different copies.
  7. The citation for copied sources in Google slides should be at the top left and your name and the page number should be at the top right of the slide. Use the format in the examples I gave you to see how it should be done.
  8. If your Internet article doesn’t have an author, use the title of a website article if it has one or the name of the organization that produced the website if it doesn’t, and the year published or copyrighted. Do this for both your internal documentation & your Works Cited if your source is from the Internet. One difference between them, never use the URL in the internal documentation, but always include the URL in the Works Cited.
  9. Your Works Cited entries should also be in the order that they occur in your paper.
  10. Double check to make sure you don’t have anything in the internal documentation that isn’t in your Works Cited, and vice versa.
  11. Save an extra copy of your research project – both your journal/research paper and the sources in Google slides, because your computer wants to eat your project!! Give it a slightly different name – for example label it with the date so you’ll know when it was last updated.
  12. PDF – convert your journal/research paper AND your copied sources in Google slides to a PDF. Submit them to BOTH your Chemistry Google Drive Shared folder and Turnitin.com.

May God bless you as you work!! I love you and I’m praying for you!!!

  1. I rate myself 3/5 on the chemistry project. I had to fix some things and start some things over but overall, I think I did pretty good.
