There are two kinds of student researchers: those who thrive on the time and detail demands of the research process and those who would rather have a root canal than develop a thesis statement. The Subject Is Research is written for both of them. The contributors, some of whom are students, all realize that sometimes the process works and sometimes it doesn't. But by researching and studying their processes, they've all improved and gained satisfaction from their work.

The Subject Is Research provides the insight and ideas, directions and insider's advice that will help your students become the best research writers they can be. This research can take many forms - from library and Web searching to interviewing and watching television. Some chapters explode myths about research and others offer inventories, exercises, and alternatives to help students begin, continue, and complete a research project with more comfort and success than they have previously experienced. There are also chapters that illuminate what students are being asked to do. For extra help, "Sharing Ideas" at the end of each section encourage students to think aloud (or in a journal or classroom discussion) about their relationships to systematic, scholarly inquiry, and "Hint Sheets" at the end of the book offer lots of activities and resources for both teachers and students, including information sources, style sheets, and much more.
