Research Assignment

Your assignment is to write a research paper on marine plastic or colonizing mars. 

Keep in mind that a research paper is similar to writing a regular essay.  In the research paper, you will be required to present in writing:

  • An introduction with a strong thesis (a brief summary of your topic may be essential so that your reader will have an understanding of your chosen topic)
  • A body paragraph(s) that demonstrate a topic with supporting details and analysis of that topic
  • A conclusion with final thoughts

The main difference between a research paper and a regular essay is that students are required to gather their own resources.
