    Have you kept any old term papers or essays you wrote back in your school days? If so, what was it about and what was grade?

    I have some of my old HS papers, all written in ink on ruled paper in binders, with some drawings and pictures from magazines pasted in. It was on the USS Constitution (Old Ironsides).

    Unfortunately, one of my biology papers got lost at my grandmother's in Mississippi (I think one of my slacker, ignorant, redneck cousins turned it in as his work). I would have loved to have that. It was full of observations, with drawings of snail eggs seen thru a microscope. I had the development of cells then the heart beating. It was classic, like something DaVince or Van Leuvenhoek would have done centuries ago. And it was the technology of the day in the early '60s.

    I think I have a copy of my wife's paper on the Russian Invasion of Afghanistan from one of her college humanities classes in the late '80s. (I did her humanities work - and got good grades) Again, this was without the Internet searches and copy & paste. This was wading thru Microfisch files at the library of news magazine articles. Tedious research.

    I did not keep any of them. But the one I got an 'A' on (US History class) was about the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake.

    i havent kept research papers.. although i was the editor of the school paper and wrote a monthly column for the local newspaper--- i have some of those articles.

    I was a really good writer.. won a contest at Temple university while i was in high school. My college papers were so awesome that my community college professor who also taught at Rutgers University now uses them as samples for her classes on "the perfect essay/research paper". she actually made me sign a disclaimer that she could use them. THAT made me feel really good

    Funny in my file cabinet I have a few research papers from college saved and a few assignments from middle school as well. Strangely I didn't keep anything from high school.

    I used to for my grade school papers/essays...have no idea where they are now because I don't remember throwing them away. I do have papers from one of my classes from last semester.
