Your grade will be dependant on your ability to follow MLA format and the conventions of the English language (ELACC11-12L1,2,4).
In order to best explore the history and background information, we will be exploring the following topic through research. You may select the serial killer which most appeals to your research interests.
When you select a serial killer, be sure to not just regurgitate bibliographical information; instead discuss the societal norms for the time period as well as how the serial killer selected his/her victims and how the crimes were committed.
Once you’ve selected a topic, focus your research on three questions:
1. Who is this serial killer, and what crimes did they commit?
2. How did the serial killer affect their immediate community and society as a whole?
3. How does your serial killer fit the psychological profile of a serial killer?
You are required to find at least three to five sources of written information. These should come from respected websites. You should use your Data Packet to keep track of the information you find.
After you have gathered the data and written down the pertinent source information, you will need to organize it according to the three questions listed above.
Once you have developed a topic, gathered data, and organized your data, you can begin writing the paper. Use the checklist on the back of this sheet to guide you!
