Welcome to the Project
The purpose of the project is to emphasize the importance of citation, developing a familarity with proper researching techniques, and improving the organization of your writing. For your project, you will be able to select either Immigration or Beirut. The resources you will use have been selected for you, and can all be accessed from this page. Select the tab that corresponds to your topic to proceed.
Research from home
If you are reaching this page from outside a school building, in order to perform original research you must get to the databases the long way. Start at www.ccboe.com, click on Library Media Resources and then Home Access. When asked for it, the login is: charlescounty and the password is: welcome. This will give you access to all of the CCPS online databases, including the ones used for this project. If you have questions or problems accessing the databases, please see Mrs. Weingarden in the Media Center.
