Students will develop a disciplined approach to writing the research paper: a sustained activity requiring imagination, introspection, research, organization, and of course, writing! We will learn how to identify an appropriate topic, perform initial research to refine the topic, carry out more detailed research and take notes, organize our results, outline and draft the formal paper using one of several common formats, create a bibliography, proofread, and present our final version.
