The AP English Language and Composition Research Paper 


The Rationale:  Many college courses require you to submit a major research project, a term paper.  Therefore, the knowledge of the research process and paper development can be an invaluable tool for success after high school.  Furthermore research and citation processes may be addressed on the AP exam.  In other words, even though you may be grumbling now, you will thank me for this one day!


The Assignment:  You will demonstrate your understanding of the research process by submitting a 4 to 6 page research paper written in MLA format on a topic of your choice. You will adhere to the MLA style with proper citations and a "Works Cited" page.  You will use at least 6 sources: 2 books, 2 Internet, and 2 "other" – software, periodicals, etc.  You will process your final draft through Turnitin before submission.


The Method:  We will approach the research process in stages and you will be required to submit, subject to assessment and grading, evidence of the successful completion of certain stages.   Due dates for certain stages will be announced on my web page and in class.  We will devote a portion of each class period to the discussion of research methods and techniques, citation, plagiarism, and paper formulation and organization.
