Research Essay Writing

Course Description

Designed and developed for American seminaries and private religious schools, our Research Essay Writing course uses a time-honored scaffolded approach to teaching one of students’ most dreaded assignments: the research (or term) paper.

Step by step we guide each student through the task of developing a well-supported research paper, demystifying for them the process along the way by grounding them in the basic steps of clear and thoughtful essay structure.

Lessons range from narrowing a topic and generating a thesis based on an actual assignment, to creating an outline and refining body paragraphs with concrete detail and discussion. Revision and standard source citation play major parts in helping each student complete the final goal: a successful research essay.
