Writing a research report does not have to be a difficult task that your students will try to avoid. Once your students learn a systematic approach to writing research papers, they may find they actually enjoy the writing prcess more, and you will dread reading their papers less. The book is divided into the following sections: Getting Started, Finding and Organizing Information, Prewriting, and Writing. In Getting Started, the student will learn how to brainstorm possible topics for their papers, how to narrow down the possibilities, and how to focus on a manageable topic. In Finding and Organizing Information, students will be introduced to two systems for locating books in the library, plus search engines to find information on the Internet. They will learn how to differentiate between fact and opinion. In Prewriting, students will become familiar with the standard, five-paragraph form for written reports. In Writing, students will learn to expand their outlines into fully developed research reports by writing first drafts, revising, and writing final drafts.

An excellent homeschool resource. Use it over and over again until the concept sets in. Great for kids with ADHD that forget "formats" easily. Serves as an excellent reminder. Great homeschool resource!
