Overview

This course prepares students to plan, research, and write academic-level research papers autonomously. Students are guided through all writing stages, from preparing and articulated research proposal, to collecting sources and arranging them in an annotated bibliography, to outlining, drafting, and, finally, completing the paper in accordance with current MLA guidelines. Each stage is also punctuated with writing drills in the form of in-class essays, citing and quoting drills in the form of worksheets, annotation drills on select academic sources related to the class theme, and a thorough overview of the use of library resources, both material and electronic. Students will also practice discussing and explaining their project in workshop sessions.
