Pro tips
•Writing does not have to be linear
•Don’t have to start with the intro
•Start wherever you feel most comfortable
•Go where your research leads you
•You can cut and paste later, as needed
Next week…
•We’ll talk about identifying and extracting specific pieces of information from your research that you want to use in the paper
•We’ll also talk about how that relates to the writing itself
•Then we’ll talk about how to incorporate those pieces of information into your essay
•The last topic, the following week, will be documenting your sources using MLA 8 style—something that shouldn’t be brand new to you
•After that, you should have all the information you need to complete the paper, which is due April 27.

Search tips
•Brainstorm search terms in advance
•No “hits”? Change search terms
•Too many hits? Try narrowing by adding words
•Too few hits? Broaden your search by removing or changing words
•Remember, the word isn’t “search.” It’s “re-search.”
•Realistically: 30-60 minutes per source
Research goals

•Find the rest by April 7
•Remember, research is the “invention” part of the research paper project
