Gina Babinec 11/13/13 COMM 280 Kurtz Exploratory Essay I distinctly remember my first legitimate research paper. In my sophomore year of high school, I took AP European History. The professor was extremely intelligent and a wonderful teacher, but something just wasn’t clicking (I know now that it was probably the fact that it was indeed a history class). When the final research paper was assigned in the month of April, I didn’t think it would be too hard because I finally was given something I loved: writing. In the weeks leading up to the turn in date, we had to submit a draft to our teacher. I decided I simply didn’t need to turn it in because as a sophomore in high school, I knew all there was to know about writing, right? Wrong. I got a 0 for the draft, but didn’t let that deter me from trying to do well on the ten-page research paper. So, the week that this paper was due, I decided to take a look at the chapters in the textbook regarding my topic (Martin Luther and the Reformation), and even checked out a couple of books from the library. Looking back, this was a good start to my research... If only it wasn’t four days before the paper was due. The Thursday afternoon before the looming Friday turn in date, I brought my textbook and laptop outside with me so I could lay in the grass, typing away. I spat out ten pages by the time it was about midnight
