Quarterback Chris Weinke attempted just 13 passes as a freshman in 1997. Then he took over as starter in 1998. It was rare for coach Bobby Bowden to let a sophomore start at quarterback. But at 25, Weinke was older than most sophomores after a minor league baseball career. He led the Seminoles to just under 31 points per game that year. That ranked twenty-ninth in the country. While still good, it was low for the Seminoles.

Soon the Seminoles were back to their high-powered ways. Weinke threw for 3,432 yards and 29 touchdowns in 1999. Florida State scored more than 38 points per game that year. Most importantly, the team had its first undefeated season and won its second national championship. Weinke saved his best personal season for last. As a senior in

Prewriting: Gathering Resource Information

Suppose you are assigned to write an essay based on research. The quality and quantity of the information you gather is important. What questions about your subject are you going to investigate? Begin by listing these questions. Then consult the sources that are most likely to be helpful in answering your questions.

A. What topic will you select for your essay? You might want to write about

politics, history, biology, culture, or ethics. Alternatively, you may write about anything else that interests you.

Write your essay topic here: _______________________________________________

Now write five questions about your topic. After each question, write the source you would consult to get the answer. These sources might be encyclopedias, atlases, almanacs, newspapers, magazines, or documentaries.

They might also include electronic databases on CD-ROMs or on the Internet, personal interviews of experts, biographies, or primary sources such as journals and diaries.
