Must include an essential question that your survey answers. Surveys must include both yes/no and multiple choice questions. Be sure your surveys initially include identifier questions to show samples’ demographic – Grade level – Gender – Ethnicity

Tips for the project Overall Group Relations: Be organized, delegate jobs, share the work, meet up outside of school, use appropriate technology (google docs., skype, social media), a group that works together happily has better results. Essential Questions: be sure they are open-ended questions that reflect the state of health on our campus. Be original. Create an overall question that interests you and gives room to create original surveys. Reading Quiz/Test: Take notes on the Readers. Focus your notes on the very things we’ve been teaching you. Quizzes/Tests will reflect these very same things (e.g. Appeals, Structure/Chunking, Main messages, rhetorical features, etc.) Presentations: Make sure slides are easy to read. Follow the 7x7 rule- no more than 7 bullets/slide, no more than 7 words/bullet. Make the powerpoint/prezi visually clear, appealing, and easy to learn from. Come looking profession to show how professional sounding your presentation is.
