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.
