The body of the paper must be 3 FULL PAGES OF WRITING (double-spaced) PLUS a map, photo, and references. (So it will be approximately 5 pages in total).
Be sure to include the following:
- A summary of the site
- WHERE it is located (name of country and where it’s located within the country)
- Why it is a World Heritage Site
Spelling and grammar count for part of the grade. You should have a logical introductory paragraph and conclusion paragraph.
You must include a thematic map related to your topic. A thematic map will show the topic you are researching and where it is located within the United States. The map will most likely be found on one of the websites you used for research or you can do a Google Images search for one.
For example, if you are writing about Mesa Verde National Park, find a map that shows where the site is located within Colorado. Do not provide a general/political map of the country. Instead, use Google Images or some other way to find a map that illustrates your specific site. You may choose to include a site map of the park.
Be sure to put a title/description and citation information (web address, date you visited the website) just below the image.
Find a photo of the site. Be sure to include photo credits (who took it, where you found it, etc.) Cite the source and date retrieved just below the photo.
Include a list of references (you need at least two) at the end of your document on a separate references page. Also, cite any direct quotes or source material (including websites) within the text of your paper in proper format. References should follow this format. Include the date you visited the website (retrieved on date).
