Develop an original research question that allows you to enter into a conversation about an inequity or an injustice that you feel is important to discuss your question should allow you to develop a 7 page research paper that can be supported by a mininmum of 6 scholarly sources you may cite from colorblind and the beast side: however your sources should consist of a combination of books, scholarly articles, newspapers, etc from the ccsf library databases
1, research proposal
the research proposal is not a contract and you question might change as you progress through your research journey: however you will bw provided feedback on the appropriateness of your chosen issue and working question and other practical matters. for the research proposal, discuss the following in 300-400 words
a) develop a research question: you will develop a research question that is focused(not too broad), challenging (not just factual), and grounded(not too speculative ) as a possible entry point for your research. why does this question need to be asked? what would you like your audience to do reading your paper
b). describe research conversation: based on preliminary research, what have you learned so far about the research conversation you will enter? what entry point have you found to offer own insights and ideas
c), describe research challenges: what challenges, if any do you anticipate( locating sufficient sources, managing the project, finding a position to take)? what resources are available to help you meet these challenges?
2), annotated bibliography;
an annotated bibliography contains descriptive or evaluative comments on the sources you are working with in your research this source list follows the same format as the “works cited” entry. you will receive feedback on the appropriateness of your sources given your topic. provide a 100-200 word annotation for 3 sources(not colorblind or the beast side)- adhere to mla formatting guidelines for works cited pages. discuss the following in your annotations:
1, summarize: if someone asked what this article/book is about, how would you describe it? what is /are the main points?
2, assess: after summarizing , evaluate the source, how does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? how do you know the information is reliable? is it this source biased or objective
3, reflect: once you have summarize and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into your research. how does it help shape your argument? how will you use this source in your paper? how has it changed how you think about your issue?
