Mini research paper: These mini research paper requirements are designed to give you an appreciation for our natural world and to help you develop your writing skills. You should have some type of an introductory paragraph, the main body of the paper, and a short summary or conclusion (the conclusion should not just mimic the introduction). The introductory paragraph should just briefly introduce the subject and then list the main topics you will discuss in the body of the paper. You should not go into detail in the introductory paragraph (save that for the body of the paper). The conclusion paragraph should just briefly summarize the important parts of the paper and bring the paper to an obvious close. You should not introduce any new material in the conclusion. You should use at least 3 references for any paper. Papers will be graded on content, style and grammar.
