Research Question, Thesis Statement, and Paper – You will develop a six to eight-page (current APA Style) research paper. Develop your topic into one clear concise research question and create a thesis statement. Compile your (one) question, thesis statement, and research into a written four to six-page written paper. You must also include a title-page and reference-page for a total of six to eight-pages. You can write from any perspective or lens that interests you: historical, scientific, technological, engineering, or mathematical. This research paper must include the following elements:
- Body (four to six pages)
- Introduction – Tells the reader what you are going to write about and includes your thesis statement. Be sure to make it interesting so the reader will want to continue and read the rest of your work.
- Body of the Paper – Goes through each point you want to illustrate by providing your ideas and your research about the topic. Be sure you write an opening sentence for each paragraph that will draw your reader into your idea or point.
- Conclusion/Summary – Reminds the reader what you wrote about in your work. It is similar to the introduction but with a concluding statement.
