According to the National Center for Education Statistics, four out of five students are not proficient writers. If you need inspiration and motivation for writing your next paper, The High School Student's Guide to Writing A Great Research Paper can be the catalyst you need to get started on and finish with an original, fresh paper one that is chock-full of extensive vocabulary, smooth transitions, and concise details that teachers won't want to lay a red pen on.
We talked to hundreds of teachers who explained exactly what they want from their students' papers, as well as high school students who have gone through the same struggles you have and shared their successful paths to overcoming writing dilemmas. In this book, you will learn every aspect of the research paper and its writing process from dissecting the prompt and figuring out precisely what your teacher is looking for to ending with a flourish that will set your paper apart from the rest.
