City Tech, Fall 2016

Secondary Sources and Progress

In the process of doing my presentation, I was able to put together ideas that would later formulate my final essay. Overall, my confidence grew since finding out how well I improved in my topic proposal. Because of this, moving forward I’m able to focus my research on post-apocalyptic behavior as my main subject, with connected research that will strengthen my overall paper. Still, my concern is keeping my research relevant to my topic. I know these coming weeks will be crucial in creating an excellent essay. Therefore, I will utilize the time I have by writing drafts, and carefully sort out my many resources from relevant and non-relevant. Another issue I’ve been having is that most of my research has to do with zombies and the zombie apocalypse. Now I understand when post-apocalyptic themes come to mind, zombies are the first thought that people seem to gravitate towards. Additionally, The Walking Dead, a show focused heavily on the zombie apocalypse serves as my primary source. However, that isn’t the direction I want go on, as I want to focus on people and people’s behavior in a post-apocalyptic.
