|Moving students beyond basic essay writing, this course teaches students to conduct research, manage note-taking, and craft a well-organized paper. Perfect for completing high school and college-level term papers.
Writing Research Papers is appropriate for high school students. In Part 1 students will answer the prompt “Are social networking sites good for our society?” Sources recommended for research explore the good and the bad related to social networking. The level of the reading materials is challenging and will require students to dig deeper to adequately utilize the information.
In Part 2 students will have the opportunity to develop their research skills, using the Internet alongside print sources as they answer the prompt “Internet: Hero or Villain?” Parental and teacher discretion is advised with online research. Part 3 invites students to choose their own prompt to complete a lengthy research paper.
