SENIOR RESEARCH HOMEWORK MATERIALS AND ESSAY SAMPLES AND OTHER COOL STUFF


You will be asked to submit two (2) of the "125pp" worksheets, four (4) of the Lit Crit/MLA Source Sheets, and one (1) peer review: all are below. (You will also submit an outline, but that requires no worksheet from me to be posted here.) It will be your responsibility to follow the syllabus, print the pages you need, and submit the assignment on the due date as outlined on the syllabus. Expect little class time to be devoted to the research paper; the idea is for you to complete this mostly on your own. Like college. Like six months from now. When you're a freshman again.
I've also attached a sample outline and four sample essays. You will see, too, other helpful documents here. Print away.
