Step 5: Synthesis

a. Organize information from multiple sources
How will you put your findings together? You may make an outline, write a draft, create storyboards, etc.

b. Present the information
Your teacher may give you guidelines to how you may present your findings. Make sure you follow your teacher's instructions. It may be an oral presentation, power-point presentation or a written term paper. Remember that whatever your final product be you should always cite your sources complying with copyright laws and intellectual property rights.

When presenting concider the following:

  • audience (e.g., classmates, President)
  • objective of the project (e.g., inform, persuade, prove a hypothesis)
  • type of information found (e.g., visual, statistical)
  • sequence of findings (chronological, branching decisions, etc.)
