The Steps to Writing a Research Paper

(1 customer review)


Do you remember writing a research paper?

Even if you don’t remember the first thing about writing a research paper, you don’t have to worry.

Why? Because we’ve created a simple guide to show you how to teach research paper writing to your highschooler. From selecting a topic to  presenting a formal draft…we break down the parts of writing a research paper into easy to follow, manageable steps.

This easy-to-teach, one semester high school level English elective is written directly to your student. It includes activities designed to teach each necessary skill to writing a formal research paper. Not only that, it also has clear instructions to help you evaluate your student’s work.

This course includes the added bonus  of an example research paper (with its outline) written by a real high school student!

Ideally your student should write two research papers during high school.  Fortunately, you may use this non-consumable course over and over again for one student or ten!

The Steps to Writing a Research Paper is 76 pages, printed black and white and coil bound.

1 review for The Steps to Writing a Research Paper

  1. Bonnie

    My daughter used The Steps to Writing a Research Paper as a reference and how-to guide for a home school science class as well as for a sign language class. The science assignment was for her to research a science-related topic, perform research and experimentation (following the scientific method) and compile it into a formal science research paper that culminated in a formal presentation at a National Estuary. She also consulted The Art of Public Speaking curriculum prior to her presentation. The sign language class required her to write a persuasive type of research paper and she used The Steps to Writing A Research Paper curriculum to accomplish this task as well, even though this paper was not required to be as lengthy as the science research paper. All-in-all, this curriculum has been an invaluable asset to our home school courses.

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?

You don’t have to daydream about tying them to their chairs to get their work done.

Instead, make homeschooling an adventure by reading about swashbuckling heroes, damsels in distress, touch-and-go battles and dangerous escapes. Not only are many of the books we recommend exciting, they often teach real-life lessons on overcoming adversity and building character.

Instead of begging them to read another chapter in their ho-hum textbooks, immerse your children in the sights and sounds of history through reading excellent books. Bring history, science and fine arts to life by reading our best-of-the-best book suggestions and choosing among our many activity and lesson ideas.

Are you worried you aren’t covering enough?

Take a deep breath and stop worrying with our open and go Daily Lesson Plans covering history, language arts, science (K-8th) and fine arts.

All done for you and ready to go.


OR…you might like to craft your OWN lesson plans rather than being told what to say and do.

Put together your own lessons in history, language arts, science, and fine arts using our Unit Program Tools with hundreds of pre-read, best-of-the-best book suggestions and assignment ideas.
