Explain in a written research paper, examples of good construction techniques verses non effective construction techniques by comparing and contrasting methods in Chile to that in Haiti.
Compare the 2010 earthquakes in Haiti with the one off the coast of Chile. How did magnitude, location, and building materials affect the relative amounts of human and structural damage caused by those earthquakes? What happened structurally in each country?
Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.11-12.7 Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., quantitative data, video, multimedia) in order to address a question or solve a problem.
Text Types and Purposes
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.9-10.1b Develop claim(s) and counterclaims fairly, supplying evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both in a manner that anticipates the audience’s knowledge level and concerns.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.9-10.3e Provide a conclusion that follows from and reflects on what is experienced, observed, or resolved over the course of the narrative.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.9-10.8 Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the usefulness of each source in answering the research question; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.

Research is not a summary of data! You are to make a decision (your thesis) and prove it with three facts that you explain.
There are four parts to this Module. Go through all four and answer the self quiz questions along the way.

The Nature of Technology/Issues in Technology
Scientific laws, engineering principles, properties of materials, and construction techniques must be taken into account in designing engineering solutions to problems. 3C/M8** (BSL)
Outline of Your paper
Useful websites to help you make your works cited page.
"Haiti was not a natural disaster," says TED Fellow Peter Haas: "It was a disaster of engineering." As the country rebuilds after January's deadly quake, are bad old building practices creating another ticking time bomb? Haas's group, AIDG, is helping Haiti's builders learn modern building and engineering practices, to assemble a strong country brick by brick.
Inveterate tinkerer Peter Haas is the co-founder of AIDG, the Appropriate Infrastructure Development Group, which connect people to electricity, sanitation and clean water through a combination of business incubation, education, and outreach.
Notice how important it is for you to write down the website address. maybe you remember where your research comes from today and then not tomorrow. you need these to make your works cited page. I strongly suggest you use www.easybib.com to make your citation which have to be alphabetcally listed on your last page.
You must submit your final paper via an email to your instructor.
You must submit a packet with rubric on top that includes:
