How to Use This GuideThis document is intended to highlight resources that can be used to address the topic of Conducting Research in a Second-Year Writing Course. All resources are Open Access and can be downloaded or added to a Course Management System via hyperlink.IntroductionThis portion of the course is intended to recommend the best open educational resources related to presenting research, including creating a defensible research thesis; supporting and defending ideas in writing; understanding and debating the arguments of others;  selecting credible source material to use in a persuasive research essay; avoiding plagiarism; formatting and presenting sources in an approved academic format; and the process of drafting, revising, editing and polishing an academic research paper. These skills will overlap with other learning objectives (e.g. Reading in Academia, Persuasion and Argument, Rhetorical Situations, Genres, etc.), and instructors will likely want to use these resources and design activities in conjunction with other learning objectives. Further, this module assumes that instructors have chosen their own primary readings (academic journal articles, examples of student research papers, editorials) as examples to which the strategies outlined in these resources may be applied.Learning ObjectivesThis module is designed to address the following learning objectives:Select a topic for researchAssess the needs of the audienceCreate a working thesisIdentify types of researchAnalyze and evaluate sourcesUse library databasesAvoid plagiarismParaphrase, summarize and quote from source materialUnderstand documentation types and stylesCreate a working outlineDraft a research paperSeek feedback through peer collaborationUse the revision process to create a formal research-based written document
