Project Deadlines

Please hand in/email to Mr Conway the following:-

3rd December 2012 – List of sources of information (at least 10! You need “A wide range of different types of sources” to get into the top mark band for research)

17th December 2012 – 500 word summary/intro to your project

25th February 2013 – 1st draft. This will be the skeleton of your project. I would like you to have organised the structure, although some info/analysis will be missing.

25th March 2013 – Semi final draft – most analysis will be complete at this stage.

29th April 2013 – Final project submission date – Must be fully complete and sent electronically to Mr Conway.

Finding sources of information – Task gather at least 10 different sources.

This morning I would like students to continue research for their project. When you find a suitable resource, please reply to this post with details of it. Please be specific and give the full url rather than just

Perhaps a good starting point for most of you is this – From here you could explore and find further sources of information.

You also have, of course, the printout from Christopher Stokes book – All you need to know about the city.

If you reply and post your comment, then others can share this information, resulting in each of you gaining more sources.
