Graduate Research Paper (UNI Access Only)

Having students write a multigenre collection is relatively new to many teachers, but its key components can be adapted to fit a Multigenre Research Paper, a Multigenre Memoir, or any other multigenre focus. What makes this writing opportunity unique is that it gives students nearly limitless choices for writing in exciting genres, including narratives, play scenes, songs, newspaper articles, postcards, poetry, advertisements, essays, as well as visual forms like cartoons, sketches, maps, and more. Students feel a sense of empowerment when exploring these diverse genres. However, a multigenre collection also shares many characteristics with a traditional paper; its key parts should be pointed out to students. A multigenre collection typically includes a title page, a table of contents (with the title of the entry, the genre, and the page number listed), an introduction, a body composed of multiple genres, and a conclusion.
