Prof. Fidel SPRING 2021; Eng. 102: Home

Welcome!

Welcome! This research guide was created for students in Prof. Fidel's English 102 class and is a customized resource for this assignment.

Your assignment is to write a Research Paper on one of the following topics:

  • Racism
  • Immigration
  • Parenting

You are required to create a thesis and support it with credible research.

You will need to locate authoritative sources and integrate them into the text of your paper. You should use multiple sources with different points of view and compare them.

Citing your sources correctly is an important component of any research assignment. Your essay should include parenthetical (in-text) citations and a Works Cited page using MLA 8 style formatting.

If you have any questions about research and citations, please feel free to contact me at rebecca.steere@sunywcc.edu.
