Course Description:

This course will help prepare a student for writing research papers at a college level, as every discipline eventually asks students to research using academic articles. This course will give an overview of the research and writing process. We will begin with how to identify and use scholarly resources, how to sort and analyze information in order to create a strong thesis and outline, and how to write a research paper with a strong introduction, concise paragraphs, and a memorable conclusion.
