    7. 7. Helping Students Frame Their Research and Analyses <ul><li>Margaret Usdansky uses Topics Pages and Literature Database to guide student projects </li></ul>From Margaret’s syllabus….. Assignment 1, Identifying and Defining Your Topic and Main Argument: The Topics Pages on the Sloan Work-Family site are a useful source for selecting a topic and formulating a main argument. Take a look at the site before you begin. You are not limited to the topics identified by Sloan but are free to draw on them. To begin, peruse the Topics Pages or other sections of the Sloan web site to come up with ideas for your paper topic. Once you’ve identified a likely topic, search the Sloan data base or other data bases discussed in class to identify two scholarly empirical articles relevant to your topic. Avoid topics for which you have trouble identifying relevant empirical articles as you will ultimately need 10 articles for the completed paper…… Margaret Usdansky (Syracuse University)
