Research as Conversation

Research and Academic Writing is in someways similar to taking part in a conversation.  The other people in the conversation are your peers, your professors, and as you research, the conversation will also include scholars and experts who have developed and expressed their ideas.  As you begin your work, think about learning from others, joining the conversation, what thoughts you would like to contribute, and how you express those ideas and make yourself understood in the conversation.
