Term Paper Clinic Study Report: An Oral Presentation.
Belanger, Sandra E.; Emmick, Nancy J.
Intended for use by teachers, librarians, and others interested in helping college students produce well-written term papers, this collection of materials was prepared by librarians as a result of their work in a term paper writing clinic. The first item in the collection is a description and evaluation report of the term paper clinic. The report concludes that students desire instruction in the skills required to produce a paper, while English teachers are more concerned with traditional "editing" skills such as grammar, organization and spelling. The second and third items are guides designed to help students in choosing and researching a topic, note taking, outlining, preparing a rough copy, preparing a final copy, and organizing footnotes and bibliographies. Each area covered in the guides includes a description of what tasks each involves, how to accomplish each task, and where to look for more help in completing the task. (FL)
