Designed for high school students who already have an understanding of how to write a general or persuasive essay, this course will instruct students in conducting research, citing research, evaluating sources, outlining, drafting, arrangement, writing with an objective style, addressing counterarguments, and more. Student Book lessons are primarily divided between beginning research papers and intermediate research papers, with one major paper prompt assigned for each. The chapter-based exercises include rubrics, checklists, fill-in-the-blank note outlines, and short writing exercises which are designed to teach skills students will need to apply in their papers. A final advanced essay allows students to tie together their newly learned skills, which completes the course.
The teacher's manual includes teaching strategy tips, scheduling advice, weekly schedules, and detailed instructions on how to teach each lesson. Answers for the student book are also included.
