Questions? Need some help?
Please get in touch! We're here to support you!

Ellen Range, Student Learning Librarian - 
Ask Ellen your questions about research tools, search terms for your topic, and finding the information you need!

Keri Grokowsky, Writing Specialist -
Ask Keri your questions about outlining, writing, APA style, editing, and proofreading!
Your group will also need to send Keri your draft and make an appointment to review her feedback.

Suggested step-by-step process (Spring 2024)

  1. Groups and topics are assigned on or before January 30th
  2. Find 3+ quality sources in addition to your textbook (see Research page of this guide for resources and tips). Reach out to Ellen if you have questions or need help with this. 
  3. Create APA Reference entries for each source (see APA page of this guide). Each group will submit a Reference page to Keri by February 27th for review and feedback.
  4. Create a document for notes
  5. Read sources, copy/paste "chunks" of relevant information into notes document for each source (so you remember where it came from!)
  6. Create an outline of your project (including references!) to be turned in to your course instructor by March 14th and March 15th. This would also be a really good time to reach out to schedule your group meeting with Keri for the week of March 25!
  7. In your notes document under each "chunk" of information, use a different color to paraphrase the information in your own words
  8. Have one writer create a draft of the written project by compiling information from notes (with appropriate citations) along with your own topic sentences, transitions, and connections. All other group members should provide feedback on the draft and help with editing. 
    Remember, the goal is to weave ideas together from multiple sources using primarily your own words
  9. Submit draft of the paper to Keri by March 22nd (see Writing page of this guide for links, etc.)
  10. Meet with Keri as a group during the week of March 25th for feedback.
    • Keri's schedule fills up fast so it's a good idea to schedule early.
    • Submit your draft to Keri via email by March 22nd so she has time to review it before your group meeting.
    • Meet with Keri as a group to review feedback and ask questions about suggested revisions.
  11. Revise and finalize essay using Keri's feedback. Submit final copy to instructor by April 5th at 9 PM.
  12. Create a presentation on the topic. Develop 5-question quiz to coincide with class presentation. 
  13. Give your presentation of your topic during class on April 9th. 
  14. Evaluate each team member's participation during class on April 9th.
