For this week’s Proposal (the first step in our unified, multi-step Research Paper process, consisting also of Short Paper 2: The Annotated Bibliography and the Research Paper itself), you are tasked with the following:
Choose a broad sociopolitical topic, like those listed in Themes for Exploration in Critical Writing and the Research Paper (week 1) then, find a more specific, and singular but complex, question at issue within that broader topic that you are interested in researching and writing about for the next several weeks (a “question at issue”) and come up with whatever your argumentative stance is, at the moment, on that question (your “tentative thesis”); then, set up your document in the following format, filling in your choices after each listed element (Topic, Question at Issue, Thesis):
Underneath the title (and other MLA formatting of the page):
Question at Issue:
Following this, compose a long paragraph which: introduces the topic that will be discussed and gives some general information about the question at issue such as “Who does it involve/affect?”, “How long has this been an issue?” and “Why is it an issue?”; reiterates your tentative thesis and provides the general reasoning behind your argument, such as “Why do you think that, or why might you believe that is true?”; and answers “What do you hope to gain from researching this topic?”
In the event that you use some “initial” research in your Proposal in order to get a better understanding of something, or find some quick fact, be sure to include in-text citations wherever you are citing a source in the text of the paper as well as works cited citations on a separate page for any sources you use.
See Week 7 Lecture and Introduction to the Research Paper Process lecture notes for further details and tips on how to get started.
Proposals must be a minimum of 300 words and, in addition to possibly containing proper MLA citations, must use proper MLA page formatting where it concerns page numbers, student name, instructor name, class number, date and title. Also, make sure the document is double-spaced between lines.
Submissions must be made in either .doc, .docx, or .pdf format. A rubric has been made available to facilitate your understanding of how the paper will be graded; it is available below.
NOTICE: This assignment will be submitted from Canvas to Vericite, a web-based plagiarism checker that will test your paper against multiple paper repositories as well as the broader internet, so, again, do not cheat! (see the course policy about Academic Honesty and/or the Lake Tahoe Community College standards for student conduct for further information about plagiarism and academic dishonesty).
