Product Description
Let’s face it, teaching the research paper can be the bane of teaching English. It is a long and complicated process, and is especially daunting for students who have low skills, a lack of maturity, and/or are English learners. I have taught in low-performing, urban high schools for many years, and have seen the gamut of research paper units and guidelines for the high school level. Though many of them are well-done and very thorough (as in 40 pages of directions and 6 weeks of class time), they are too much for my students, who often give up somewhere in the process. I created this 10-page consumable student guide to streamline the process as much as possible and to make it easy for students to access the strategies that they need. This guide is interactive because after the students receive a short lesson for each step, they will then complete that step directly in the guide. The pages of the guide also serve as cheat sheets that the students can refer back to often.

 Students are required to collect four sources of information and to use three in their essay. Directions are given for online research only, but this can be expanded to teacher preference.
 The students will complete the research process in nine steps. The only steps that they will complete outside of the student guide are the collecting of their research and the writing of the paper.
 I generally give 3-4 weeks for the whole process as we do the entire assignment in class.
