Importing empty metadata into multiple files with Python?

Hello!

 

I'm trying to come up with a python script to help me import a single empty metadata file into multiple shapefiles in ArcCatalog. However, my python is very basic. I've been searching up the Esri documentation to assist me, but they don't seem to have any scripts that I can adapt to this process. I know I will need to make a list of the shapefiles whose metadata I want cleared and I know I will be using a for loop to import the empty metadata into each shapefile, but I'm not sure where to start or how to save the script so I can use it again in the future for similar processes.

 

Can anyone help me out here or point me in the right direction?
