Lost in the Danakil Depression – The Last Weekend!!!

I’m praying for you as you finalize your project this weekend. I believe in you! You can do it!!!

Here are a few hints and advice – lots more great stuff is on the Final Notes & Advice sheet under the Project tab!

1. Make sure you internally document everything! That includes anything you talk about. Also, make sure your illustrations have an internal documentation typed/written on them. (Yes, you have to have illustrations! If you don’t something’s wrong.)

2. As a chemist, you must talk about all 23 items – why they would be good to use or why you would not want to use them. NEVER say you had no use for the item. You will not get credit if you do.

3. Don’t wait to do your Works Cited page last. Do it before you finish the final draft of your paper. It takes a while to compile a Works Cited and if you don’t have one, I cannot accept your paper. It would be better to have a few mistakes in your paper than to not turn in a Works Cited.

4. Save as you go! Go ahead and save a copy of your latest rough draft in your Shared folder – label it rough draft for now. This way, if something happens in your drive or if your computer crashes at the last minute, I’ll be able to see that you have been working on your paper.

5. Get someone that you trust to read over your paper and check it against the project guideline sheet that I gave you – especially the Manuscript Form Checklist. They’ll be able to help you find things you might have left off.

You can do great things! I believe in you and I can’t wait to read your paper!
