Summary

Research Writing Simplified isolates the skills related to research and moves students through a series of stepped learning activities that provide practice and reinforcement. At only 80 pages, this is the most concise research guide available—and the most effective.

 

Research Writing Simplified offers focused, sequenced practice in the skills and conventions of research writing, as well as practical advice and general guidance about the writing process.  Exercises include practice in summarizing, paraphrasing, correctly introducing and formatting direct quotations, the various options for in-text documentation, and correct format of works cited/reference pages. These practice exercises can be the basis of in-class instruction, or they can be assigned as homework. Because answers for some exercises are provided, students can also use Research Writing Simplified as a self-teaching guide.
