I do not think I am alone when I admit to fellow English teachers that I do not look forward to teaching the research paper to my freshman high school students. Each year I taught the required research unit, which has included the I-Search as well as the traditional research paper, I was frustrated with the outcome. Plagiarism, the use of random facts, disorganization of the paper, and student apathy topped the list of problems.
SEASON THREE is the longest season. There are three sections. The essay and research paper sections will take our existing Teaching the Essay and Teaching the Research Paper units (see below), expand them, and add a video lecture component.
