Research and Writing Tips For Students

Resources to Help Students Research and Write Faster to Become More Efficient

What Does The Standards Say?

Production and Distribution of Writing:

Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.

Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.

Research to Build and Present Knowledge:

Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.

Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.

Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

Tools for Editing

Writers can use a variety of self-editing tools to improve their writing. Here are a few self-editing tools:

Consistency Checker (Google docs add-on)

Hemingway app

Kindle e-ink reader for proofreading
