Allen's Axiom

Undoubtedly the world's worst teacher designed website. 

Students will be expected to engage in specific research using the historical methods and communicate the findings of their research effectively.

As one can readily read above, the Independent Study is a research paper where the student generates the topic, research, and engages in the writing process without active guidance. While assistance is provided, it will be intermittent and offered upon request and only by appointment.
The topics that the student may select must be approved before actively engaging in research or writing.
