To begin Project 2 (which is described on the Syllabus page linked above), I would like you to prepare a brief memo and turn it as a comment made to this blog post by the end of class.
Your memo should begin with a memo header, have a one sentence description of its purpose in your own words, and five bullet points of information. The information that you will put into the bullet points includes: a term, word, acronym, phrase, or topic related to your future career that you would like to make the focus of your research project. After the topic, write at least a sentence explaining why you want to research this particular topic. Be specific and descriptive. Each bullet point is a different, possible topic for your research paper for a total of five possible topics for your research essay. You may write more than a sentence per bullet point.
We will discuss these during class next week, so be prepared to read these to the class and think about which topic among the five you write about you want to research the most.
Some other things to consider: Is the topic too broad, meaning that there is too much information to research for your paper? Is the topic too narrow, meaning that there is not enough information to research for your paper?
