Format for Senior Project Letter of Intent 123 Main St. Hilo, HI 96720 1 August 2009 Senior Project Committee Hilo High School 556 Waianuenue Hilo, HI 96720 Dear Senior Project Committee: Paragraph 1: In this paragraph, describe the general area of interest, i.e., history, art, law, social service, etc., why you chose this area, and why this project is a learning stretch for you. Make sure you explain what you already know, experienced, or have accomplished in this area. Paragraph 2: In this second paragraph, include the specific research your paper will focus on, some of the ideas you hope to include, and what possible sources you might use. “How to do” papers are not recommended because they are weak examples of research papers. It is also very difficult to write a good, arguable thesis statement for this type of paper. Begin your 3rd paragraph with a transitional sentence showing the relationship between your paper and your culminating activity. Then describe your project, what it will be, who’s involved, your potential cost, potential time spent, and possible resources (note these sources may or may not be the same for both paper and project). Finally, explain your understanding of plagiarism and the penalties of such an act. Sincerely, Student Signature Student’s Name Typed ___________________________________ Parent Signature ___________________________________ _________________________________ Capstone Teacher/School Mentor Signature Senior Project Committee Approval Note: Your letter should be well written, thoughtful, properly formatted, and interesting to read. Remember, although certain content is required, the key to a good letter is personal voice, insight, and organization. Your letter should reflect YOU.
