Draft My Project



K-5

Now that you have organized your information, it is time to draft your project -- to write what you have learned.

Review your outline.

  • Are there any information gaps?
  • Does each topic have enough supporting ideas?
  • Does each supporting idea have enough details or examples?

  • If not, do more research or determine if the aspect is necessary to include at all.

  • Do the topics and sub-topics still seem to be arranged in the best order?

Then write a draft using your outline as a guide.

  • Use facts from your notes as evidence to support your ideas.
  • Use your own words and ideas. Don't plagiarize.
      • Remember: Plagiarism is when you use the ideas or words of another person as your own without giving credit to the person who wrote them. It is a form of cheating. 
  • Concentrate on clearly communicating the information you learned.
  • You can check spelling and grammar later.
  • These scoring guides from the Oregon Department of Education may be helpful as you write your first draft:

Be sure to cite your sources or create a bibliography using Citation Maker.
