Research Paper

First Things First

Please email me a brief proposal of what you intend to do for your research paper revision. Here's what I want to know:

  • What areas will you be trying to improve and how?
  • Do you have any questions?

Notes

If the research paper was the midterm, this is your final. This is where you show me what you've learned, so it should be a well-focused paper that has a strong central thesis and makes use of AEES. Also, prove to me you've been paying attention and make the changes we've discussed, I've suggested and that you now see are necessary to make the paper as close to perfect as possible. All the same requirements apply, and I've included them below to help you out.

This paper will require you to use two outside sources which excludes all works I've assigned you to read, conform to MLA format and include a Works Cited page. The minimum word count is 1,000. This paper will be graded on a scale of A-F.

The assignment is to take any one of the papers you have already written, and revise it adding outside source material. Choose authoritative sources that will help support your thesis, and be prepared to change your thesis if the material demands it.

Sources may not include Wikipedia's, dictionaries, encyclopedias or "ask me" type sites such as Yahoo! Answers.

Sources may include reputable Web sites (this site will help you determine whether a site is reputable), books, journals, newspapers or other traditional media as well as online sources.

The Research Paper Revision is due by May 18 at 11:59 PM

You can turn this in earlier, of course, and once you do, you have finished the course and are free to enjoy your life out in the world and away from these evil machines. Or at least go to Facebook instead of hanging out here.

Have a good break.
