Lesson Two

Research Essay With Footnotes

Setting: The driftwood bridge leading up to the neighbor's beautiful beach front  property;  the neighbor's plant-filled yard, and plant-covered sun deck. (14:58)


"Now, let me show you how to do a Research Essay using our basic essay format.  My neighbors have a wonderful variety of plants; so, while I water the plants let's use LIFE CYCLES OF PLANTS as the title of our Research Essay."  As Marie waters the plants she points out examples of west coast annuals, biennials, and perennials, and uses them as inspiration for the creation of her Research Essay on the life cycles of plants.  She demonstrates the use of footnotes by utilizing quotes from three different sources: a book, an encyclopedia, and a website.
