Writing Things Down vs. Writing Things Up: Are Research Papers Valid?
Kloss, Robert J.
College Teaching, v44 n1 p3-7 Win 1996
A technique for starting college students on research paper projects is outlined. The approach, requiring students to begin with a five-minute writing exercise that can form the nucleus of a longer, more intellectually demanding paper involving library work, is felt to stimulate critical thinking and minimize plagiarism. Phased report development and close supervision also foster original work. (MSE)
