Sophomore Research Paper Season

March 24, 2017

The sophomores are embarking on their research paper journey in English 2 right now. They were able to choose their own topic that was persuasive. Many of them were excited to be able to write about something that they are truly interested in. After choosing a topic the students went to the library to learn about the extensive resources available to them through online resources. They spent some time scouring the databases to find sources that fit their needs. Once they got six sources they began to make source cards and information and quote cards, per The Write Tools method of writing a research paper. The sophomores have found out many interesting facts and sides to their arguments and have been learning a lot about their chosen topic. They will be spending the next few weeks writing their papers!
