Why do Research?

According to the Arizona State Standards, (Writing, Strand 3, Concept 6) "Research writing is a process in which the writer identifies a topic or question to be answered. The writer locates and evaluates information about the topic or question, and then organizes, summarizes, and synthesizes the information into a finished product." Per the standards, each student in grades 9-12 needs to be able to demonstrate the process by writing a research essay. At Peoria Accelerated, students are required to write a research paper in English 2, 4, 6 & 8.
 
This site is designed to serve as a resource to help students successfully complete their assigned English research projects. We hope it will also help students in all of their classes, not just English. As always, your teacher is also there to help.
