APA Style Research Paper: An Introductory Writing Guide

Has your homeschooler been writing MLA-style research papers for years and needs a new challenge? Is he or she planning to study psychology or a science field? It is time to try an APA-style research paper!

Many homeschoolers will find that when they start college, their science and social science courses require writing in APA-style. It is a VERY different format from the fun and familiar MLA-style research paper. It can be overwhelming!

British Poetry Literature Study Guide

This study guide, by Vicki Tillman, covers a sampling of British poets. It includes background information and answer key.

Excerpt:

In this unit, we will look at some great British poetry. Now, there is no way that we can look at ALL of British poetry. You can do that in college. We are going to look at some of the more popular and easy to understand poems.

We will be looking at works by: George Herbert, William Cowper, William Blake, Gerard Manley Hopkins Rudyard Kipling, Percy Bysshe, Shelley, Robert Browning, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Christina Rosetti, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Sir Walter Scott, William Butler Yeats, Lewis Carroll, and Robert Burns

Sample questions:

“The Altar”

After you read “The Altar” answer these questions: 1. When I read this poem, it talks to me about making a broken heart an altar (place of sacrifice) for God, remembering Christ’s sacrifice. If I choose to praise God despite the broken heart, it becomes a sacrifice of praise. Can you see what I see? What do you see in the poem? (Write a sentence or two.)

2. What shape do you see in the poem? Does it make the poem more effective, in your opinion, to have the poem be in a shape rather than just in a traditional poem form?

---------------------------------------------------

A note from Sabrina Justison, author of this high school literature study guide for the Republic of Plato:

While you may use any translation of Plato's Republic, this study guide was created using Francis MacDonald Cornford's translation.  This Study Guide is only created for use with Parts I and II (there are FIVE parts total made up of multiple chapters). The reading is demanding for high school students, and therefore I elected to use only part of this otherwise overwhelming text.

 The sections covered are (in order):

Some Current Views of Justice (as honesty in word and deed, as helping friends and harming enemies, as the interest of the stronger, and 'Is injustice more profitable than justice?') and

Justice in the State and in the Individual (the problem stated, the rudiments of social organization, the luxurious state, the guardian's temperament, primary education of the guardians, selection of rulers, the guardians' duties, the virtues in the state, the three parts of the soul, the virtues in the individual, the equality of women, abolition of the family for the guardians, usages of war)

 In case the translation you use is labeled differently, I hope that including these section titles will help you to determine which sections of Republic to assign for reading as you use this study guide.
