Each chapter focuses on one area or task in the writing process, and provides plenty of strategies, practice, examples and tips for handling that section smoothly. The chapters walk students through finding a topic, locating resources, researching that topic, writing bibliography cards, taking notes, outlining their paper, writing the first draft, revising and editing the draft into the final copy, writing the bibliography and presenting the final paper. The text is filled with clear instructions, visual examples, and helpful hints. Reproducible student activity sheets are also scattered throughout the book, providing the student small-scale practice before they apply the skills to their own research paper. At the end of the book you'll find evaluation rubrics and answers to the activities found throughout the book.
