Research and Position papers are not fun to write at all. You are searching for the best sources possible. Drinking a lot of caffeine to stay awake. Pretty much, the CSI effect comes into play. I know what you are thinking. The TV show CSI. YEAH!!!
You follow the evidence except you are not rolling over dead bodies or trying to determine blood splatter patterns. Instead you searching through books, articles, and journals finding the best quotes to make your research or position paper awesome to your professor or teacher’s assistant.
When you turn in your research paper, it is like solving a case. There is no more returning to do research for the evidence. The research paper is case closed.
