The research (term) paper is one of the core assignments we give undergraduate students, allowing them to reflect on meaningful questions and develop their own scholarly voices. Yet the results do not always meet our expectations. In this workshop, we will explore how to design assignments that engage students and encourage them to develop their critical thinking skills. We will consider alternative approaches to structuring the research paper assignment and discuss ways to evaluate that are not overly time-consuming. Please bring the instructions that you provide students for a research (term) paper assignment (e.g., from a course outline, a handout), so that you can work on it during the workshop.

Note: Refreshments provided.
