Written for diverse academic audience, this text serves as a handbook for professors, instructors, and advisors who oversee data collection by undergraduate students for the purpose of writing a research report. Section One provides background information concerning today's diverse undergraduate student population and the increasing emphasis placed on research in the college classroom and field settings. Section Two presents strategies for enhancing the research writing skills of undergraduate students. Finally, Section Three examines specific research contexts, including service learning projects, science lab/ fieldwork, internships, portfolios, and visual arts inquiry. Adult educational theory is woven throughout the text, along with international perspectives.
