How should I write an outline for a research paper on "The Chrysanthemums"?
In literature courses, writing an essay based upon research has 3 main purposes:
- It teaches the student how to conduct literary research (i.e. how to find, evaluate, document, and cite literary sources)
- Its fosters an examination of literary resources such as criticisms that have been written on various works.
- It encourages the student to become a researcher by composing his/her own interpretation of texts by citing and countering other interpretations in order to create his/her own argument.
