Eng 091 research project2

  1. 1. ENG 091 Research Project Part One: Research You must read at least 1 book source (if not theentire book, at least a related chapter), and 3 RELIABLE electronic resources (see chapter 7). For each source, write a summary of the main points. You will use the “Source Sheet” I have handed out to you. Make sure you also get the appropriate information necessary for the citation, as you will use that information to create the bibliography. Part Two: Project Choice One: Paper. You can write a 4-5 page paper that teaches your topic. You must have an introduction, a main idea (thesis statement), a body with relevent details, and a conclusion. Be careful to cite your sources appropriately, plagiarism will result in a zero grade. If you use an author’s words or even paraphrase an author’s ides, cite. When in doubt, cite. This webpage will be helpful for citations: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/557/03/ Choice Two: Presentation. You can teach your findings to the class in a ten-minute presentation. If you choose this project, make sure to have a visual as a teaching tool. This visual can be a poster, a PowerPoint, or a video. Again, if you refer to findings from an article, make sure to cite it properly. Copied visuals must be cited. For both choices, you must write a bibliography in MLA format. You may find this website helpful: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/05/’ Part Three: Reflection You must a write a one-page paper that reflects on your research process and how this class has helped you. The paper should: - Describe what you did to find souces. Did you discard any sources as irrelevent or unreliable? - Explain the most difficult part of the project for you and why it was difficult. - Describe what you learned from doing this project (about content and/ or research). - Explain how these skills will help you meet future goals.
