Report planning
? Read the attached instructions & rubric carefully – identifying key words and make sure you know what’s really being asked
? Determine the level of detail required
? Determine the length of report and therefore what can be covered in that length
? Make sure that the information you gather is appropriate within the context of this unit

I have attached weekly journal entries that will give you an idea of the content that has been covered in class. This will also give you further references if needed.
