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?" It will reflect your understanding of the genre of fairytales, as part of the larger genre of the “narrative,” and how to research and write about literature.
Your paper requires you to locate 5 scholarly, authoritative sources and integrate them into the text of your paper. In addition to scholarly sources, you will need to include literary sources.

A literary source is a piece (or pieces) of literature, such as:
A scholarly source contains commentary and analysis ABOUT a piece of literature.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
