I‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ have copied and pasted what is on the syllabus, I will be attending more intrusion and the rough draft that I wrote with the source in it. My rough draft is not perfect there are a lot of mistakes on it with the teachers comments to help write the Final paper. There must be at least 10 sources and I have them all I will be attaching my bibliography. This is more of making a research paper out of what I wrote instead of just making one from scratch. If you have any more questions at all feel free to message me. There are a lot and very specific instructions for this research paper, make sure to read all the instructions very carefully. This paper must be 6 to 8 pages long I would prefer 7 pages just to make sure. Assignment #3: Academic Research Paper Overview Instructor: Susan Morelock First-Year Writing Seminar – Writing with Light This thesis-driven academic research paper will explore a topic of your choice orbiting around photographic practice(s). As we are discovering in class, contemporary photography is an expansive and diverse subject. You should work to define a topic that is at once medium-specific, timely, and of strong interest to you. The final paper will be an 6-8-page MLA formatted academic argument that explores, assesses, and supports your topic orbiting around photography. Most importantly, you should be able to incorporate examples from 1 (or more) specific photographer(s) working in the field. The essay will have 5 distinct sections: Introduction The introduction will give a broad overview of the structure of your paper. Here, you will share your research question in the form of a thesis statement. Tell a story: What are the main concerns related to this topic, and why might a reader be interested in this? Although the literature review will do the heavy lifting, briefly present a few of your sources in the introduction. Refer directly to these texts to demonstrate that your research interests are based on a broader context. Identify the hole your research is filling! This alerts the reader that your research is important and you will try to fill-in that gap. Literature Review The literature review is an opportunity to share background about your topic. You will share information you learned and explain why your research question is important to answer. Incorporate a minimum of 8 different sources that give context for your topic. Think of “weaving” a story or leading the reader on a hike of new territory. Summarize and analyze readings to help give context to your research interests. Include different perspectives and present different viewpoints. Find authors who might view your topic in a slightly different way from you. Do you think this different viewpoint is valid or not? Why do you think so? Use in-text citations. Your literature review should include at least 8 in-text citations. Here, you can summarize, paraphrase, or quote. In all circumstances, you must use MLA Formatting. Methods and Results H‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ow did you conduct your research? “Methods” tell us about the “primary materials” you used to answer your research question. Show samples or include the survey or interview questions, etc. Tell us why you chose the primary materials that you chose. Why did that particular primary material best respond to your research question? Examples of Primary Materials might include: Scholarly and Discipline-Specific Articles and Media Field Notebooks, Blogs, Diaries, Sketchbooks Artwork / Photographs / Videos In-Person Interviews Analysis The analysis will summarize your work and draw a conclusion from the evidence presented. Organization of materials. How did you organize all of the primary materials you gathered or collected? What themes appeared? Or what did you notice? So, what? Tell us what you make of your “primary materials.” How do your results shed light on your research question? What did you learn? Discuss the limitations of your work. Answer the question, So What? What did you learn? Conclusion a. How does your thesis statement extend / question / explore / narrow common definitions and usages of the topic under consideration? b. How is your argument in conversation with historical and contemporary debates; here you may tie your argument to areas outside of photography c. What’s still unclear? What else needs to be understood in future research? Avoid “pushing the canoe into the sunset” or wrapping up things neatly in a bow. Leave the reader curious about the topic and wanting to know more. You could even tell us what went wrong in your research process and how future researchers could do better. d. Anticipate objections from your intended audience e. Explore new questions or lines of inquiry has this research project raised. This assignment will help you: Define an issue, demonstrating your awareness that you are entering a conversation that contains multiple perspectives on the issue. Make a focused claim about your issue (., state an arguable thesis that locates your stance among the multiple perspectives). Provide reasons that support your claim. Provide evidence for each of your reasons. Anticipate objections from people with other perspectives and, when necessary, provide refutations, negotiations, and concessions. Illustrate an awareness of the unspoken/unwritten ideological assumptions (values and beliefs) underlying your claim and reasons as well as those underlying your audience’s claims and reasons. A number of small-to-medium project components will act as tributaries to your final paper, including a proposal, an annotated bibliography, an outline, and a major draft. Throughout the writing process, you will have numerous opportunities to develop your work via individual conferences with your instructor, feedback from our writing fellow, visits to the Writing Center, and peer review. Each project component will be discussed in class and accompanied by a unique description with assessment ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍criteria clearly defined.
