    Grade 9&10 project

    Hello lovely teacher(s).
    My grade 9&10 student are having a research project to be graded for this quarter four (4) session. The topics to be researched are: 1) Homeschooling. Investigate this topic and illustrate the advantages and disadvantages of studying at home with individual tutors. 2) Cyber-Bullying. Can it be considered a crime? What should be done to reduce the number of cyber-bullies on social networks?
    What do I have to do to explain how to go about the first, second and final draft of the research topic to the students?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Thanks.
    I've fixed your post.

    I'm not a teacher, so I have no teaching advice.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Charlie has already shown you the main corrections that were needed. Above, I have shown you how your post should have been laid out. Line breaks are important!

    If you're the teacher, why don't you know how to explain to them what they need to do?

    I have moved your thread to the "Teaching English" sub-section of the forum.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Grade 9&10 project

    I don't really understand what you're asking us to say.

    How old is grade 9 and 10?
    Have they done their research already?
    Do they know what they have to do next?
    Have you shown them how to organise their work into sections?
    Have you given them the language they need to write the textual parts of the assignment?

    Have you studied to be a professional teacher?
    Do you have a head of department or someone else at your school to support you?

    Remember that research topics don't have drafts. The topic is the subject that they are to research (homeschooling, etc.). It's their written texts that need to be drafted.
