Students will conduct a research project, culminating in a 10-12 page paper, over the semester. Each student will choose a topic in consultation with the professor, write a paper proposal and bibliography, write and present a draft of the paper to the class, and then turn in a final research paper on the day assigned for our course’s final exam. (There will be no final exam in the course.)
Paper conferences with our class writing mentor Jillian Hall are required and will really help your papers.
The papers will be evaluated based on the grading guidelines on the syllabus.
More information will be provided as the semester progresses.
