From the Paper 2 Handout:
After you have read and seriously thought and considered the ideas in that text, it is time to write a 400 word proposal. Formal proposals call for you to identify an issue as a problem and present a solution to the problem. For this course, the proposal is a pre-writing activity for the researched argument essay. Thus, the problem you will need to identify is what you don’t know about your research topic and how you plan on solving that problem through research.
In 400 words, propose why you should research a certain topic for your argumentative essay addressing the following issues:
Significance of the topic: What do you already know about the history of the topic, the topic’s affects, etc.
Two sides of the argument: identify the two sides of the argument, and where you expect to position yourself in this argument. What reasons does each side provide as support for their position?
Explain your position on the argument. Be sure to explain the logic of your choice rather than the emotions that drove you to accept this position. Remember that you need to provide valid, logical reasons rather than rely simply on the rightness or wrongness of an issue.
The type of research you plan to complete: What specific journals, books, etc. will you consult? Do not simply state you will search the internet and/or the library. I want specific titles of magazines, newspapers, journals, books, and websites and why you plan to consult these specific references. You should also include the key terms you will use while searching various search engines.
Once you submit your proposal, you must then comment on at least two of your peers’ proposals. Think about their topic. Is it arguable? Is there more than one side? Can it be academically researched?
With this assignment, you are planning your research strategy and argument. If you wish to change your topic at a later date, that’s fine, but you will be required to write another proposal, and contact me before submitting it.
Your proposal will be graded on your address of each of the four issues above, the essay’s structural strategies we have covered so far this semester, and comments to your peers’ posts. You need to submit your proposal essay as an attachment labeled Lastname_first initialProposal.doc (MS Word file) such as Smith_JProposal.doc.
You will also be participating in Discussion Board workshops for your research paper as well, so make sure to manage your time wisely in the coming days.
