TRANSCRIPT

1. Road Trip Mr. Sheehys analogy to the research paper 2. How can a road trip be like a research paper ? 3. Isnt that an insult to the coolest American experience, the road trip ? 4. Listen, it makes sense. 5. Both involve a process . Both involve sharing your discoveries. 6. Need more? 7. Okay, lets take a look. 8. Step One 9. Decision time. 10. Where are you going? 11. Its like choosing a topic , 12. Or creating a thesis . 13. Step Two 14. Prepare. 15. Plan. 16. Collect info on what you want to see. 17. Sound like research ? It should. 18. Step Three 19. Start packing. 20. Youre doing more than packing, though. 21. Youre organizing, 22. Making sure nothing ends up in the wrong place. 23. So when its time to go, youre ready. 24. For this, teachers use words like 25. categorize , 26. and organize , 27. and tools like 28. note cards 29. and outlines . 30. Step Four 31. Hit the road, 32. See everything, 33. send a postcard, 34. & take pictures. 35. Its like a report . 36. But if anyone is to follow you 37. It has to make sense. 38. Thats why there is 39. Step Five 40. Leave a trail 41. that can be followed. 42. So if your friends want, 43. They can eat where you ate, 44. or not, 45. and do what you did, 46. or not. 47. Teachers call this 48. Writing citations 49. And making a works cited . 50. So lets be honest , then. 51. Its hard work. 52. It would be easier to hand your friends a pile of brochures and a map, 53. Or to hand in to your teachers a list of urls. www.flickr.com/photos/33264067@N00/243089839 www.flickr.com/photos/64264362@N00/13227861 http://find.galegroup.com/menu/commonmenu.do?userGroupName=sdln_sds&action=updateCspList&searchTerm=maple&DB=GVRL-0_SPJ.SP00_JRC_DC_GVRL.sdbc_GVRL.sdec_GVRL.sdlnhtc_GVRL.sdlnlgc_GVRL.sdlnmc_GVRL.sdlnsc_STOJ_STOM_ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maple www.flickr.com/photos/62528187@N00/302328043 www.flickr.com/photos/46555636@N00/455282196 www.flickr.com/photos/12754005@N00/399020839 www.flickr.com/photos/82777265@N00/113488168 www.flickr.com/photos/68799045@N00/57290754 www.flickr.com/photos/15261067@N00/208322666 54. But your friends want to hear what YOU thought about your trip, 55. And your readers want to hear what you think about your topic. 56. And in the end, 57. its worth it. 58. Just think of it 59. as a road trip. 60. Image Attribution Original image: ' Have a great day!
