SORTING OUT A MESS
There is perhaps no task students find more overwhelming than having to complete a research project, but there are ways of making the assignment—if not easier—at least more productive.
This six-session course intends to introduce a logical and methodical process resulting in a better end product. The course will break research and its writing into several steps, and while no materials are required, it is recommended that those enrolled bring a current or potential research assignment to the course.
Topics covered will include:
Understanding writing basics, research, and sources
Evaluating and understanding secondary sources
Gathering potential sources
Writing the first draft and a rough draft
Organizing the material used
Writing the final draft
Finalizing the project
