For this portion of the SA, you will write a research paper 4-6 pages in length (not including the title or References page) that makes an argument addressing the course’s Big Question: Why is research and writing valuable to my future career? Your paper should address a specific issue and audience, provide a thorough analysis of the issue, and be supported with both primary and secondary evidence.
How to Proceed:
Identify the Issue: Conduct some preliminary research and identify conversations and issues related to the BQ.
Identify the Audience: Choose the audience for your paper. In other words, whom are you trying to convince of your argument? Identifying a specific audience will help you determine the most effective support to provide and the most appropriate tone to use.
Review Course Content: Consider what you have learned throughout the course from texts, presentations, discussions, and your own research and writing that you might apply to answering your research question.
Conduct Secondary Research: You may make use of the texts that we have read and the prior research that you have done, but you should also include at least three new sources that you have found specifically for this project.
Conduct Primary Research: Your primary evidence may come from interviews, observations, or surveys.
Analyze your Research: After collecting your primary and secondary evidence, consider how the various sources relate. You will undoubtedly notice both great and minor differences in perspectives. You will want to consider these various views as you develop your own position and decide how you will use this evidence to support your thesis.
Construct a Thesis Statement: Write a clear and detailed argumentative thesis statement that addresses the BQ. Feel free to use a simple phrase to set up your thesis, such as “In this paper, I argue. . .”
Construct a Preview of Main Points: Write a preview of main points that will let your reader know what will be happening in the body of the paper and in what order. You may need to provide more background information in the body, and the preview will let your readers know that that is what you will be doing. With that said, the preview should focus primarily on outlining the direct support that you will be providing for your thesis. Feel free to use a simple phrase, such as “In this paper, I will. . .,” to introduce your preview.
Outline your paper: A basic outline for a paper of this length might look like this:
Plan an introduction of 1-2 paragraphs that introduces the topic and provides your thesis statement and a preview of main points. The introduction is also a good place to position yourself in relation to the topic. You might begin with a brief personal narrative in the introductory paragraph and then transition into more scholarly work as you move toward introducing your thesis.
Organize the body of your paper upon 3-4 supporting points. Each of your supporting points will likely have two or three subpoints. If you provide a paragraph for each subpoint, you can determine how to best outline your paper so that if falls into the 4-6-page range.
In each body paragraph, consider how you will assert and explain your point or subpoint and connect it to the thesis. Also consider the types of evidence that you will provide to support each point and subpoint.
Plan a concluding paragraph that summarizes the paper’s main points, restates the thesis, and brings the paper to a close. Oftentimes, connecting to how the paper was introduced is a good strategy.
Draft your Paper and Get Feedback: Type a draft of your paper for peer review.
Get Additional Feedback: Consider getting additional feedback from a Writing Center tutor or by visiting me during office hours.
Revise: Use the feedback that you’ve received to make revisions and prepare the final copy of your paper.
