    The next step is to find evidence about the effects of poverty on children. I would start by googling: "research studies on poverty and its effect on children" Research studies can provide you with valuable evidence, but remember, not all research studies are created equal! Hope this helps, good luck!

    There are also many articles interpreting and summarizing existing research studies, these might also be a good place to start.

    Like dgo said, I suggest you read articles first before you get into writing. Take notes, and know what you're writing about. "Research has shown that child from low-income families experience emotional and behavioral problems more often than nonpoor children, in fact, “one study of low birth weight five-year-olds…found that children in persistently poor families had more internalizing and externalizing behavior problems than children who had never been poor.” Source: http://www.cga.ct.gov/coc/pdfs/poverty/2004_poverty_report.pdf Info like the one given above could be quoted as evidence. Try to follow this format, too, if you're really having trouble. In a paragraph, have the following sentences: P - POINT (topic sentence) E - EXPLANATION (what's your point about?) E - EXAMPLE/ELABORATION/EVIDENCES R - REITERATION Hope this helps!

    Totally agree. The more you know about your subject, the better you will be able to write about it. The research process may seem tedious and boring, but if you stick with it for a while, you actually start to enjoy it. I used to hate doing research, but I liked writing. In college I had, for many classes, a research paper due every week. I hated it, but after four or so classes I realized that a) I was actually starting to like doing the research, and b) I was writing better papers than ever. Now I still love writing, but I do enjoy doing the research before hand and knowing what I'm talking about in my work.
