Prof. Rubenstein - Eng. 102 - FALL 2020; Fairy Tales: Home


Welcome! This research guide was created for students in Dr. Rubenstein's English 102 class.

This guide is a customized resource for this assignment, and I encourage you to refer to it as you conduct your research.

You have been assigned to write a persuasive research paper on the topic "Are Fairy Tales Good or Bad for Young Children?" 

Your paper requires you to locate 5 scholarly, authoritative sources and integrate them into the text of your paper. Citing your sources correctly is an important component of any research assignment. Your essay should include parenthetical (in-text) citations and a Works Cited page using MLA 8 style formatting.

If you have any questions about research and citations, please feel free to contact me at 

For real-time assistance, use the live IM box from the library homepage.
