Research and Writing Seminar
Presented by the faculty of Taylor Seminary.
In the video posted above, Taylor Seminary (Edmonton, AB) presents a tutorial that is an essential guide to research and writing for our students. Many of the guidelines and suggestions here will be invaluable to any post-secondary student who is seeking to eliminate costly errors and missed opportunities that negatively affect GPA.
- What is the best way to get started?
- How do you organize your paper?
- What are the characteristics of Argumentative Research Papers, Historical Research Papers, and Exegesis Papers?
- What are research suggestions and guidelines?
- What about including quotes from others in a paper, and how does one avoid a damaging charge of plagiarism?
- What are the essentials of research writing, in terms of style, grammar, footnotes, bibliographies, etc.
- What are Syd's Top Ten Writing Errors to Avoid?
(Based on insights from the long career of Professor Emeritus Dr. Syd Page, the final item on that list will surely include some clarity for everyone on common writing challenges.)
As a student, this hour-long presentation may be one of the best uses of your time you will find, and we think many viewers will find it worth watching more than once.

Come Celebrate with the Graduating Class of 2014!
May 4 Graduation Exercises 3 pm at West Meadows Baptist Church
Everyone is welcome to attend the Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2014. Nineteen students will graduate this year, and three students will receive graduate certificates; this is the biggest graduating class at Taylor Seminary in four years.
The theme of Grad this year, as chosen by this 34th graduating class, is Taste and See; the reference comes from the 34th Psalm: "Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him." The featured speaker this year will be Dr. Terry LeBlanc, director of My People International.
The ceremony will take place at West Meadows Baptist Church, on 199 Street in Edmonton, just north of 87 Avenue. The ceremony begins at 3 PM, and people should be seated by 2:50 PM. Following the ceremony, the Taylor Alumni Association will host a reception in the foyer of the church, offering light refreshments.
