Tackling research infographic

  1. 1. TACKLING RESEARCH AN INFOGRAPHIC Organizing a research paper into structured sections guarantees success. Follow this guide to plan and organize your Tackling Research paper. 1. Introduce your topic. Establish your authority. Who are you? What is your field of study? What experience do you already have with writing in that field or for that job? Have you written only in an academic capacity (i.e. for school)? That’s okay! Explain how your education is preparing you for a career in that field. Do you have on-the-job experience? Great! Explain how your experience (and perhaps your education) has prepared you for your dream job. What job are you pursuing? Educate your audience in the first paragraph. What are you going to teach us? 2. Incorporate research. Inform the audience. 3.Use your own knowledge and experience to explain the main or most practical way writing is used in your field. Use library research and cite your sources! Use the “Quote Sandwich” to support the research. The Quote Sandwich ✦ The top layer of bread is your specific claim. ✦The lead-in to the quotation, also known as a signal phrase, is the peanut butter. Example: “According to Walsh,” “Walsh writes,” etc.) ✦The jelly is the actual quotation, followed by an APA in-text citation. ✦Your interpretation of explanation of the quotation is the bottom layer of bread. 4. Add supporting details. Explain an unexpected way (or ways) that writing is used in your field. Back up your claims with library OR secondary academic research. Cite the research in-text! 5. Persuade to conclude. Persuade your audience (the imaginary interviewer) that you have the knowledge and experience to pursue your dream job, and that your ability to write well makes you the best person for the position.
