Project 2, Reminders

Even though we’ve gone over these resources extensively during class and there are links on the syllabus, I wanted to provide plenty of coverage of APA resources that you will need to read, follow, and apply to your second major project.

Other things to remember:

Your research paper should address these four points as part of your discussion: history of the term, debates about the term, the meaning of the term, and uses/examples of the term.

Your conclusion should not simply repeat what you have already presented to the reader. Instead, use the conclusion to answer the question: so what? These are some questions that might help you focus your response to “so what”: Why is this research important to understanding the term? What present or future directions do you see based on your research? How might the field change in relation to the topic that you have research? Why is this topic important?

    This is an excellent start. Your topic sentences are great. Please recheck subject/verb agreement. I have made some suggestions on your paper in this regard. I like how in the abstract you list the main points and then you elaborate on them in that same order. I wonder, though, why you have an introduction. Frankly, I see no need for it. You can incorporate those same points in the body of the paper. The references should be listed alphabetically; by surname of the author/writer.

    Some housekeeping points: pay attention to upper case letters. I have changed some of them to lower-case. See my specific points which I recorded on your paper.

    This is the start of a good paper!


    Best regards,
