***i only need a final draft***English 12B: Unit 3Research Paper Instructions & GuidelinesUnit 3: Lesson 1Please select one of the topics below to begin your research -FrankensteinResearch the characteristics of Gothic literature and make a list of everything you learn about it. Then review passages from the novel Frankenstein and compare the list of Gothic characteristics to the novel. What similarities do you find? Explain how Frankenstein is a Gothic novel. In your essay, write about the elements that make up the story such as the setting, character development, narrative voice, tone, and theme. Choose a few of these, and explain how they contribute to the novel’s identity as a Gothic novel. Support your findings with lines from the novel and researched information. Do not write a book report or summarize the plot. Instead, prove that this novel is Gothic through the evidence gathered during research.Research the scientific advancements of the late 1700s and early 1800s in Britain. Choose a few of these advancements that happened BEFORE 1818 when the novel was published, and explain how those advancements created perceived dangers to the public, and may have influenced Mary Shelley when she wrote Frankenstein. Compare and contrast the advancements of the late 1700s and early1800s with more recent advancements in science. Discuss the influence the advancements from both periods. For example, explore the debate surrounding grafting human body parts, etc. and discuss how issues like these relate to the novel. Support your findings with lines from the novel and researched information.The subtitle of Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, is “The Modern Prometheus.” Read the myth of Prometheus, and then research the figure of Prometheus from Greek mythology. Write a research essay that explores the connection between Shelley’s novel, the Greek myth of Prometheus, and modern technology. Compare and contrast the characters of Victor Frankenstein and Prometheus to determine the consequences each faced when introducing their discoveries to the world at large. Then, choose a modern-day inventor / innovator and explain how their creation / innovation has or will change the world and whether that individual will face the same type of consequences as either Victor Frankenstein or Prometheus. To support your findings include lines from the myth and the novel as well as researched information.Unit 3: Lesson 2To begin your research, open a new document that will be turned in later as part of your rough draft portfolio. Connexus provides excellent resources that you can use to find reliable research information such as EBSCO, Discovery Education, and Grolier Online. For example, on your home page, select the “Links” tab and then select the link called “EBSCO.” In EBSCO, please select “Student Research Center – High School & Middle School.”Using key words from your prompt, find five sources of research using the search box near the top of the screen.If you’re struggling to find relevant research, then use this guide to search for research When you found a source you think might work, click the title in the search results list to be taken to the article. Be sure to preview your articles to be sure they will be good for writing your research paper later. If you think you have a good source, copy and paste the Persistent Link or Permalink into your document. You will need these links later for the research paper AND your works cited page.Remember to save your document.To understand how to find reliable sources, format these sources, and create a works cited page, please join us for our weekly LiveLesson sessions or watch the recordings posted on the Message Boards. These will be your greatest resources as you work through your research! Unit 3: Lesson 3Read each source you selected in the previous lesson carefully. Find two quotations that help answer your selected topic. If you cannot find two quotations, you can change to a new source, but keep at least four or five total sources (8-10 quotations). At the end of each quotation, add the author’s last name or other source information in parentheses so you can remember later which quotation comes from which source. Be sure to add a page number if the document has them so your notes look like (Author ##). *Note that different sources are cited differently, and you are responsible for citing them properly using the guidelines in chapters 11 and 12 of Writing with Power!!For each quotation, create a one or two-sentence explanation about how this quotation connects to the topic you chose.Unit 3: Lesson 4Looking at your quotes and notes from each of your sources, place your quotes into categories that answer the question. These categories should be the basis for your body paragraphs. Copy and paste these categorizations into a coherent order lower on the paper. Leave the original notes and source links at the top, your instructor wants to see each step in the process.Next, begin working on connecting the quotes to each other and adding transition words between these paragraphs.Unit 3: Lesson 5Now that you’ve completed the research for your paper, determine what the most complete answer to your research paper topic question is, and that is the foundation of your thesis statement, the answer to the question your paper should be addressing. Now begin with the introductory paragraph. The first sentence should draw the reader into the research paper and be related to the topic. Then, give a brief preview of the evidence the reader will see in your paper. Finally, you should have your thesis statement.Unit 3, Lesson 6Read through your body paragraphs again. Make sure each has a transition from the current evidence paragraph to the next. See if the paragraphs answer the topic question and be sure you’ve connected your sources.Then begin writing your conclusion. Re-summarize the evidence you provided. Rewrite your thesis (in new words). Finally, include a tie-in from your introduction to end the research paper.First draft: minimum three pages + notes. (Refer to unit 3, lesson 2 and unit 3, lesson 3)Check My Work: You are required to run the entire paper through Check My Work. Find Check My Work in the blue links box on your home page. Once the report is generated, submit it to the drop box with your research paper portfolio. Watch this quick tutorial for help creating a Check My Work reportSubmit the entirety of the paper into the Dropbox. This should include “Check My Work,” sources, notes, and the research paper.Unit 3, Lesson 7Revise your research paper looking at the content and overall organization. Consider the questions in the graphic organizer below.Why does this topic interest you?What do you already know about this topic?What do you need or want to know about the topic?What kinds of evidence do you need to answer any questions about the topic?Where can you find this kind of information?Unit 3: Lesson 8Revise your research paper for grammar and structure.Unit 3: Lesson 9All of the information you need for your works cited page can be found on the EBSCO link you created for yourself earlier. Use your link and at the top of each of the articles in the blue box area (where you found the permalink earlier) will be the vital data you need for the works cited page.Create MLA citations for each of your five sources; place those in alphabetical order and on their own page at the end of the document (use the page break function).

Unreliable and user-created sources like Wikipedia, About.com, Shmoop, SparkNotes, and free essay sites, etc. may NOT be used. If all your research is done through EBSCO, this should not be a problem.
