Finally, an easy-to-use resource that guides students along the entire process of writing a great research paper! Video Aided Instruction's brand new "Writing a Great Research Paper" DVD series helps middle school, high school, and college students master essential research techniques, develop crucial study habits, dramatically improve their writing, and learn the value of true scholarship. The 10 DVDs in this developmental series are also perfect for educators who wish to further their professional development or enhance their classroom lessons. With these unique programs, viewers will discover the secrets of: using search engines; avoiding plagiarism; locating obscure information; taking effective notes; synthesizing their research and their writing; and much, much more! Now students can transcend those disorganized jumbles of rehashed quotes and unfocused writing: they can learn to form a thesis, develop logical arguments, analyze and cite sources, and actually write a great research paper! Best of all, every tip, trick, and technique presented applies to research papers for all academic liberal arts subjects: English, history, political science, psychology, sociology, science, technology, the arts, business, economics, philosophy, education, and more! The formatting of a research paper -- its typeface choice, font size, line spacing, page margins, page numbers, and other stylistic decisions -- can make or break its presentation. In fact, many teachers and professors provide formatting guidelines and conventions that must be followed, but many students just don't have the computer know-how to follow those instructions. This volume teaches viewers how to set important formatting options in programs like Microsoft Word, and helps them make sound formatting decisions when they prepare their research papers. One DVD/1 Hr. 15 Mins. Item #VAI-199X. Volume 9 of Video Aided Instruction's 10-Volume Writing a Great Research Paper Series.
