Description and Purpose: In this research paper, you will be exploring an idea and opinion you have on a topic choice given to you about the film Gran Torino. For this research essay you will be turning to outside reliable sources to find quotes and information that you can fold into your argument to help support your ideas. This opinion that you have formed about the topic is called your thesis. A good research paper – no matter how long or short – will offer a convincing argument about a certain topic and will be well supported with credible sources to bolster and strengthen your argument. In short, the more convincing you sound in your paper, the more likely I am going to believe that your view is correct.

Remember, you are trying to write like an authority on the subject so eliminate any “I think,” “I believe,” “According to me,” etc. These phrases only weaken your opinion. State your ideas with conviction!
