Frequently Asked Questions
Can I start "How to Write a Research Paper" before Jan. 8?
Ms. Finnigan will likely need until Jan. 8 to finish building the course, but if it becomes available sooner, she can let you know!
Do I have to write about geocentrism?
It is recommended that you use the class as a springboard for your paper topic; however, if you decide to write about something else, that is okay with Ms. Finnigan if it is okay with your parents!
What are the age requirements?
Dr. Sugenis's live class is open to adult learners and high school students age 16 and up. Ms. Finnigan's Office Hours and the Symposium are only open to high school students (and their parents).
Do I have to present at the Symposium? (I'm shy!)
Formal presentations are welcome! We can also informally share our findings and/or engage in casual discussion. Ms. Finnigan will contact you beforehand and will moderate the Symposium. We'll just see what people are up for!
Will Ms. Finnigan be grading our work?
The self-paced class may include some short, automated quizzes. It will not include online grading. As a special bonus for purchasing this bundle, Ms. Finnigan would be happy to read your final paper and give you some feedback on it. For more regular grading, check out her Writing Coaching and Paper Check-Up services (below).
