Ace Your Research Paper

Ace Your Research Paper


Writing a research paper is the primary channel for passing on knowledge to our peers. The process of writing a research paper forces a student to organize their thoughts, streamline their thinking by disposing of irrelevant information, and use words effectively and efficiently. During this class, students will gain research and informative writing skills, ultimately composing  well-organized opinion, research, and informative pieces that:


  • Use supporting claims and evidence based on credible texts and resources


  • Provide an introduction that includes an explanation of what follows


  • Develop topics through the use of facts, details, quotations, examples, and subject-specific terms and definitions


  • Include transitions that connect concepts, events, and paragraphs


  • Include a conclusion that supports the presented idea(s)


  • Maintain a formal “essay type” style


  • Integrate other forms of media and formats such as graphs, charts, headings, audio, or video when appropriate
