Each group will write a report in English that will be handed out after Christmas holidays (January, 11th, 2010).

• Lay out and contents

The reports have to be handed over in a word document, Arial 10, with 1,5 line space and will content:

1. cover
2. Index
3. Body of the report (maximum 5 pages)
4. Bibliography

1. The cover has to be a full page (number one of the report) and include the following information:

• Title
• Author/authors and their class
• Date

2. The index will have all the different sections of the report (the titles of each part of the body of the report) and their page number.

3. The body of the report will have the information of the assigned task divided up in 4 parts including descriptions, drawings, graphs, etc. Each part can be divided into sub chapters, each one with a heading.

4. The bibliography has to include the list of reference books, encyclopaedias, magazines used for the work. It has to be organized in alphabetical order of authors, following the publication date, title of the book, place of publication, house publisher.

In a separate list you have to include the web pages, ordered according to the date you consulted them (this is important as not all web pages and indefinitely active).

Example how to write the bibliography:

Bernal Guerrero, A. (1989). Técnicas de investigación educativa. Sevilla, Alfar.
