This guide will assist you on your research assignment on issues of Immigration. Visit www.evc.edu/library to get started with your research. The tabs above will guide you to various resources.
Please 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)
- 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.
Students are required to conduct research on their own of one issue by describing and arguing or describing and showing its causes/effects. In addition, analyze and critique your topic, and offer possible solutions to end the issue/problem.
