The Research Paper Workshops
A research paper is an essay that analyzes a perspective or point and gives facts that support this interpretation. In short, a research paper presents a point and argues it to prove its validity. To write an effective research paper, students must be able to use critical thinking and analysis, organizing information to present the topic and defend it.
The Literary Analysis Workshops
Literary analysis relies on the use of quotations and or paraphrasing from a text to provide evidence and examples for that analysis. This presentation will guide you through the process of:
- Coming up with a claim
- Writing an appropriate thesis or topic sentence to state that claim for the essay or for a body paragraph
- Finding appropriate examples from a text to quote or paraphrase
- How to insert those quotes into your own writing
- How to add your own analysis to explain how the quote(s) demonstrate your claim
