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! Of course, students know that the work they submit should always be their own. Nevertheless, under tight deadlines and busy schedules, they're sometimes tempted to cut corners by "incorporating" the work of other authors into their research papers without giving proper credit -- and that's one form of plagiarism. In fact, occasionally students submit entire papers that they've borrowed from other students, purchased off the Internet, or even hired other students to write. This extraordinary program helps students learn how to demonstrate integrity when citing, quoting, and paraphrasing resources in their research papers, recognize many common scholarship "mistakes," and navigate the tricky waters of endnotes, footnotes, and bibliographies. One DVD/1 Hr. 15 Mins. Item #VAI-1949. Volume 4 of Video Aided Instruction's 10-Volume Writing a Great Research Paper Series.
