Writing the Research Paper

This one-semester class walks students through the process of writing the MLA (Modern Language Association) research paper and develops their argumentation skills.
Three research papers are composed during the course beginning with a short essay in which the instructor takes students through the writing process slowly and step-by-step also providing research articles for that essay. The second paper is a longer project with a little less help allowing students to choose their own topic and research materials. The third paper is when the “training wheels come off.” Grades 9th to 12th
