Template for Research Papers

Name: ________________________________ Date: ________________ Block: ________

Use the following guiding principles to formulate a well-researched and articulate paper:

  • Always provide your¬†citations¬†at the end. Most work is researched from reputable online sources,¬†you must use 2 outside of Wikipedia. LiveStrong and government websites might be more reliable than run of the mill websites found by simply entering key terms.
  • Open with an¬†introduction¬†both stating your¬†thesis¬†and a¬†summaryof what you will be writing about.
  • Include within the body, a brief¬†history¬†of the disorder; the¬†research and development¬†currently surrounding this disorder;¬†what¬†the disorder is in a nutshell; the¬†prognosis¬†and likelihood of a¬†remedy;¬†symptoms; etc not necessarily in this order and¬†preferably in their own paragraphs¬†as common sense dictates
  • A¬†conclusion¬†summarizing your paper and including a¬†personal connection¬†to this topic and/or the¬†reason¬†you chose this over other diseases.

You need not include all the information on the web in this paper. Two well written pages (usually around 500 words) plus 2 diagrams or photos or images (cited please) from the web will suffice. The images should be appended or pasted after the written portion of your paper.

Please us your class time wisely.

Printer issues; please anticipate as research papers are due at the bell with no leniency given around leaving to print in the learning commons. After the bell late work will be assessed as per Biology 12 Course Outline guidelines.

Plagiarism: please include citations –> research gathered is to be¬†in your own words. Academic honesty policies abound on the JO Website, VSB Policy guidelines, and on Mr Sommerfeld‚Äôs bulletin board near the front entrance¬†😉
