  • 1. Drafting the Research Paper English III NCVPS
  • 2. Where we are O You’ve chosen a topic O Researched your topic O 4 sources O 1 graphic source O Organized your research into an outline O You might want to revisit your outline, and improve it based on feedback before you draft. O You should be able to write your rough draft straight from your outline O Written a clear, concise thesis that states your topic and position
  • 3. Plagiarism O Plagiarism is very serious, and incidental plagiarism is easy to do in a research paper. Perhaps you didn’t put something in quotes when taking notes, or you didn’t paraphrase enough O Be sure to avoid it! O Double check your notes for paraphrasing, direct quotes and summaries O Be sure to parenthetically cite at the end of where you got the information O When in doubt, Google the phrase to double check
  • 4. Drafting tips… O You also need to use citations in your paper, so I know where your information came from O Research papers include facts, not opinions, so you should make sure you don’t lean on one side or another, or have bias in your paper O Avoid personal pronouns O You need to determine what your purpose, or reason for writing is O Your paper should have an objective tone to it, so that the facts can be trusted
  • 5. More drafting tips O Write an introduction that outlines your entire paper O Be sure your research is organized by sub-topics O Don’t get hung up on pages. Focus on the writing, if you’ve done all the steps correctly, you’ll be fine. O Once you finish writing, set it aside for a little bit. Later, come back and read it out loud to catch any mistakes
  • 6. Feedback O Once your rough draft is graded, it is very important that you go back through and read your feedback. O I expect to see these changes made in your final draft.
