LEAP 8 Research Paper and Presentation

Assignment Overview

Welcome to the LEAP 8 Assignment Guide! If you completed LEAP 5 or LEAP 6, you'll remember that an Assignment Guide is a special website that highlights the best resources for conducting research on your topic.

In LEAP 8, students prepare a major research paper and presentation on a topic of their choosing. 

The LEAP 8 instructors recommend using three types of information sources. This may include:

  • Books (in print or online) 
  • Journal articles (popular or scholarly)
  • Media (videos)
  • Reliable websites

This guide will help you start your research on a good foot!
