Write a Research Paper One Step at a Time: Research Writing Guide.
Evans, Helen, Ed.
Intended to supplement the textbook series "Houghton Mifflin English Grammar and Composition" and to offer students and classroom teachers in the secondary schools a review of research writing, this guide outlines a step-by-step process allowing for thorough student comprehension and comfort with the application of basic research and writing skills. The table of contents reflects the series of steps involved in this process: (1) select a topic; (2) write a thesis statement; (3) make an outline; (4) research the subject; (5) record sources on "works cited" cards; (6) take notes; (7) write a rough draft; (8) use parenthetical references for documentation; (9) list the works cited; and (10) revise, proofread, and write the final paper. A sample cover page, outline, research paper, and works cited list are included. A list of correlations of curriculum to Texas Essential Elements for Library/Information Skills for grades 6, 7, 8, and 9-12 conclude the guide. (SR)
