Class Description
Monday, 11:20 AM to 12:20 PM
Research and Report Writing  
Teacher:  Alice Wescott
Age:  13 & up
Prerequisites:  May NOT be taken concurrently with Essay Writing.
Cost:  $260 tuition per year, paid in four $65 payments;
$25 copy/supply fee per year, paid in one $25 payment
Text:  MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, by Gibaldi, 8th edition, ISBN: 978-1603292627 or ISBN: 1603292624
Description: First semester, students will be “walked through” the steps to writing a research paper as they write two reports.  Second semester, they will use these skills to produce a major research paper.  Supporting skills, such as summarizing and note taking, will also be taught.  Students should plan on 1.5-2 hours of homework per week, but this will vary depending on what phase of the paper we are in.  Additionally, time will need to be spent in the library for this class.  Past students regularly contact me to say that this class greatly helped them be prepared for the papers they had to write in college.
