Reminder: Research Projects due tomorrow

Just a friendly reminder that all parts of your research project are due tomorrow, Tu 5/13, and that you should:

  • Bring to class a folder with the final draft of your Research Proposal/Annotated Bibliography (along with all previous drafts/peer review comments/my feedback) & your Research Project Reflection)
  • E-mail me three files before class begins: 1) final draft of Research Proposal/Annotated Bibliography (as one file, proposal on first page, annotated bibliography after that); 2) your Research Project reflection; 3) your Presentation file. You can attach all of them in one e-mail, but they should be three separate files, each clearly/correctly labeled. If you do not submit them before class tomorrow, you will receive no credit for your work (late e-mails/files will not be accepted).
  • Come to class early to load your presentation onto the classroom computer, and be ready to start presentations promptly at 2:30pm.

 

I strongly suggest that you review the guidelines/expectations/formatting for the various parts of the Research Project before you submit.

We will also be celebrating the end of the semester, so please feel free to bring in snacks to share with the class and we can enjoy refreshments during the presentations (I will bring in some goodies as well). Looking forward to your presentations tomorrow 🙂

Reminder: Revisions of Research Project due Tu 4/29

Hi everyone:I hope that you enjoyed your spring break, and that your research projects are going well.

For our next class on Tuesday, please bring your printed sources (articles, books, etc.) as well as a laptop/tablet if you have access to one.

I’ve read through/provided comments (as a “reply” to your posts) on all work submitted this week. As it states on the Schedule, you should do a revision of your research proposal (now, your 3rd draft, if you have done all of the assignments) and a six source annotated bibliography (a revision/extension of the work you did over the break).

Keep in mind that you are not writing an essay/paper, but a fully revised research proposal/annotated bibliography according to the guidelines/expectations provided for this Research Project. Make sure to follow the guidelines and to use my feedback on your various drafts as you revise. (Some of you didn’t turn in drafts, or didn’t included annotations with your sources, so I wasn’t able to provide feedback: it is very important going forward that you submit the entire assignment so you can get helpful/substantive feedback on it from me and your peers). Also, remember that, while you only have to submit a six-source annotated bibliography, you need to consult/read/consider many more sources in order to become an “expert” in your topic.

This next draft is due Tuesday (4/29) by the start of class: bring four printed copies to class and e-mail it to me (as one file, clearly labeled) before class begins. You do not have to post this next draft to OpenLab.

In class we will peer review/workshop these drafts, and move towards your final drafts which are due the following week. We will also discuss how to give effective presentations, as you will presenting your research projects/findings/arguments to the class on 5/8 and 5/15.

See you soon!

Cheers,
Professor Belli
