Welcome! This research guide was created for students in Prof. Burn's English 101 Writing and Research class and is a customized resource for this assignment.
You are required to write a persuasive research paper about a topic of your choice.
A persuasive essay is one in which you attempt to get the reader to agree with your point of view and show that your view is more legitimate. Use clear arguments and support them by convincing facts and logical reasons.
