Dive into the Research Process The research process helps you understand your subject, formulate ideas for your writing, develop a thesis statement and speak about your topic with authority. In the process, gather as much source materials as you can and review them. Examples of useful literature include government publications/reports, newspapers, books, periodicals and online journals/articles. Writing the Research Paper Once you reach this point in the research process, you may feel confident and energized about the thoughts and ideas you uncovered. We understand that you need time and patience to create a thesis statement and use an outline to organize your presentation. With that said, your paper should have the following elements:
The Introduction - RESEARCH PAPER ASSIGNMENT
Present the background and context for your entire work in the introduction. Come up with a convincing and robust opening sentence with the goal of engaging the reader. You should also explain the purpose of your paper and your plans for approaching the subject. The introduction should give clear reasons for writing the paper and addressing it to the reader. You need to focus on providing general information regarding the main idea. Remember to explain the claims you make and state why the main point is of significant value to your work. Conclude the introductory paragraph with a thesis statement that states your position with sound reasoning, emotional appeal, and credibility.
The Body - RESEARCH PAPER ASSIGNMENT
Use the outline you developed as a tool for guiding the body and keeping you on track of the main ideas.
