My Reference Shelf - Writing for Life by Karen Lange - GIVEAWAY!
The Book: Write for Life: Volume One: Writing the Research Paper
This book offers ready to use lessons for grades 7-12 that guide students through the process of writing the research paper. Suitable for homeschool families, co-ops, or other student groups, these eight lessons break down the process from start to finish with helpful instruction, encouragement, and practice.
Lesson topics include:
* MLA style research paper basics, topics, and sources
* Thesis statements
* Developing content
* Rough and final drafts
* Citing sources
As always, I'm so impressed with Karen's thoroughness and knowledge. The research techniques are valuable not only for doing papers, but also for those writing novels or non-fiction pieces. I wouldn't limit this book to teaching teens.
Karen includes great Time and Stress Saver Tips. All in all, I'm keeping this on my Reference Shelf. It's a great resource.
You can connect with Karen on her Amazon Author Page.
