LIbrary Resources for Author Reseach Project

Basic Requirements for the Author Research Project

Basic requirements for Author Research Project 2024:

You will complete a research paper on the author of your choice as approved by your teacher.

  • You may work with a partner if you choose; however, it is not required.

  • The paper will be 3-5 pages in length (not including title page and works cited).

  • An outline must be developed and turned in for a grade (see timeline).

  • A rough draft must be developed and turned in for a grade (see timeline).

  • A works cited page (MLA format) must be documented and turned in with the rough draft. 

  • Remember that you must have a minimum of three resources including one website/webpage and at least two database resources (access through Libguides – click on “Databases” tab). Ideally you will also have a print resource if one is available (we will have a cart of reference books from the library available in the classroom to assist with this). 

  • Essays should follow the standard expectations of style:

  • 12 point standard-type font (Times New Roman, Arial, Courier, etc.) and double-spaced

  • 1 inch margins

  • Black ink

  • Title page with author and student’s name/students’ names, date, and period number
