SUMMARY

Research Papers helps students master essential research skills through engaging topics, interesting readings, and practical exercises designed to guide the beginning writer from asking basic questions to pursuing thoughtful investigation. Students become familiar with the latest tools for locating information and learn to evaluate the articles, books, and Web sites that result from traditional and electronic searches. The Second Edition features a new, thematically organized casebook that complements the text with additional poems, essays, and dramatic works to stimulate students' research ideas. The text continues to lead students through each stage of writing their own research papers, from identifying possible subjects to proofreading the finished paper. The unique, hands-on workbook approach presents numerous exercises that help students gain the confidence and learn the skills for brainstorming, inquiring, organizing, and avoiding plagiarism. New! A casebook of additional research sources includes factual and fictional selections that present fascinating topics such the Lizzie Borden murder trial and the Titanic disaster. New! A chapter focusing on a sample student paper and research journal demonstrates the structure and schedule of the research paper process. Updated! Expanded coverage of research technology--including electronic discussion boards, licensed databases, and Web-based resources--now features integrated guidance on avoiding plagiarism when using these important research tools. Designed to be flexible and versatile, all of the exercises can be used in class or as tasks for individual or online work. The unique approach of the text focuses on a staged research assignment that evolves chapter by chapter, allowing students to engage in the writing process as they work with the models in the text.Marian Arkin is the author of 'Research Papers: A Guide and Workbook', published 2005 under ISBN 9780618549788 and ISBN 0618549781.
