PowerPoint (Pecha-kucha format) (15 points) 2. Individual paper (10 points) 3. Peer Evaluations (5 points) This assignment involves group and individual effort, described as follows. Each student is assigned to a group. Each group has an assigned topic. Each group must narrow the topic as much as possible and design a research question.

Further, each student writes a standard 5-paragraph paper on his or her individual research. Each student completes the Peer Evaluation Form on all group members, including him- or herself.
