This came right in time as I am preparing my students to write a research paper. For most, this is the first time they have written one. This strategy will be perfect for all my students. I fear that using this strategy will take a great deal of time but I do know that it is important if I want them to produce a well written paper. I also think it is important for students to see a model of the final copy. I plan to model what this looks like as well as how to conduct research.
