The Assignment

*This is an excerpted from assignment handout  from Spring 2020.

Your task

Part 2 — The research itself (at least 3 pages): As you contemplate the problem and do research, narrate the evolving process of your thinking. Include three kinds of information for your reader:

(1) External details of your search: conversations with friends and family, trips to the library website, methods for finding sources—the narrative “story” of your search and the methods you chose for research. → How you researched.

Part 2 of your paper should discuss no fewer than five sources that you deem credible, relevant, and important to discuss in regards to your evolving research and thinking on your paper’s focus.
