Hope everybody's having a great weekend!
I started writing my Google research up in paragraph form, like a research paper, when I realized that I was probably making this harder on myself and for the folks who are pulling everything together in the end. I'm sure that we all have very different writing writing styles, so the end product folks will be applying their own style to all of the research in order to make a consistent-feeling project write up. It seems like that would be easier to do if all of the information was in note form... bullets maybe, rather than paragraph form. It would also be faster to write up the research in bullets. It would be a lot faster to find the key points and to determine what works together vs what doesn't and then apply your own style to final write-up. If the bullet uses a quote then use parenthetical citation in the bullet and list the sources at the end in APA format.
What do you guys think?
Oh, on another note, I emailed google corporate relations on the odd chance that they have tons of advertising stuff sitting around that they could send us to use to create a Google-esque environment for our presentation. I thought pencils or silly hats would be good to use as prizes if we play a game. It's a long shot, but it would be really cool if they came through! That's my A-level contribution as a substitute for making a google cake. I'll let you know if I hear back.
