English Composition 1001

Research made easy.


This guide is a series of mini-units on the research process.  It will guide you step-by-step through choosing a topic, brainstorming search terms, finding sources, and evaluating those sources.  

Each unit contains an introduction video, a couple of "best bet" resources to explore, and an activity to  apply what you have learned. 

Please use the "Get Help!" tab to ask questions related to your research process and make an appointment with an ENGL Composition librarian. We are happy to meet virtually and go over your specific questions!


This workbook contains all of the activities within this guide, in one spot.  You can also access these worksheets individually in each corresponding unit.  The handbook is a pdf form, so you can download it and edit it directly on your own computer.  This is a great way to keep track of your research progress throughout the semester.
