Marine Biology Research Sample MLA Research paperInstructions:
The paper can be on any topic related to Marine Sciences. The most important part of the paper will include a discussion about the current research being done on the topic. The main body of the paper should be comprehensive discussion on the scientific research being done, including what methods are being used to do research and what are the results to date of the research.
Waste Disposal Sample Research Paper in MLA styleInstructions:
This is environmental science class's research paper but actually it is more likely an essay. Because I need to write what makes me think the trash recycle is important. So this paper need to be focused on personal opinions and experiences. Again, this paper is about why do I think the trash recycle is important.
Symbolism Example MLA PaperInstructions:
Pick a short story, a play, and a poem all from our textbook, that all have some of the elements of writing in common (theme, character, plot, symbolism, or setting) and discuss how these elements compare and contrast to each other across the various genres (fiction, poetry, drama) to express their ideas.
My paper will discuss how symbolism is used in each one of these pieces:
Shakespeare-A midsummer's nights dream
Sidonie-Gabrielle-Colette - The hand
Robert Frost- Acquainted with the night
MLA Writing Style Example Paper on LiteratureInstructions:
The student will write a 6 - 10 page research paper that demonstrates the ability to do the following:
1. integrate research with ideas and evaluation
2. base the paper on adequate library material and write it in non-technical language
3. use standard scholarly practice for MLA documentation and source citation
