To tackle a bundle of resources for writing a research paper is not an easy task for an experienced instructor. Even worse, it is a confusing one for a student who is asked for the first time to write a research paper after studying several courses of essay writing. Writing a research paper needs not to be a frightening task. A research paper may be longer than most of all college essays, but a student will be given more time to complete it. Having a plan for work will make the process go smoothly. Over the years, I have arrived at a time-saving, ten-step, simple strategy for this. The first five steps prepare the student to write and the remaining steps helps in writing the documented paper.This book goes through these steps giving some examples from online resources.

The ability to compose among college students is far from satisfactory according to the author's teaching experience and their scores in CET 4. Being one of the fundamental skills in language learning, writing is inevitably an indispensable part in English teaching. However, the writing teaching is rather time-consuming but unrewarding due to large class size and tight class time for those non-English majors.Based on the literature review of feedback and teacher feedback, the author carries out a questionnaire investigation in the college where the author works. After the investigation and the analysis of the results of the questionnaire, more insights about the feedback giving has been acquired. It is strongly believed that mare changes and revision should be taken to perfect the feedback giving in class as well as a variety of feedback styles and multi-draft writing.

Writing is an important lifelong skill. Most college freshmen are required to take first-year composition to meet the needs of writing across disciplines. Yet, a great number of students enter college unprepared. To combat this, the writing process should be practiced as part of a solid writing program. This study seeks to define the components of the writing process and how these evolve for students in an online first-year composition course. Invention work, multiple draft production, and the collaborative and social aspects of writing were used throughout a process-based curriculum. Participants made changes to their general writing process by conducting more invention work than they had before and finding the practice worthwhile, by producing more drafts than they had on previous writing projects, and by reflecting on what the collaborative and social aspects of writing mean in terms of acting on feedback from others. The online first-year composition course curriculum gave students the tools to build and shape their existing writing practices.

Journal writing is a significant reflective vehicle which actively engages learners in processing of their learning experience in order to integrate it with existing knowledge and create new meaning. Hubbs and Brand (2005) describes reflective journal as “paper mirror”, and states, “As a glass mirror reflects a visual image, the paper mirror reflects students’ inner worlds and making of meaning” (p.70). Reflection through journal writing provides the opportunity for learners to return to their previous learning experience, and self-evaluate their learning capabilities which as a result may increase their self-efficacy.
