Staying On Track: The Writing Process for Research Papers
Research papers present a new set of challenges in the spring. They are generally longer than anything students write in Fall E&D, and the wider range of ideas and sources involved can make them difficult to manage. This workshop will help students learn how to organize their research into cohesive, persuasive arguments. We’ll discuss the key sections many research papers include, but also some differences across topics that can require distinct approaches. We’ll also discuss strategies for writing effective introductions and conclusions, which become more essential as papers grow longer and more complex. Finally, we’ll talk about strategies for time management and motivation throughout a long-term writing project.
