UNIT 3 Worksheet 2 brainstorming your Research Proposal
Write a short draft (at barest minimum, 4 paragraphs) in which you present a proposal for research. In this proposal you will state your problem and tell the reader how your inquiry will potentially shed new light on this problem. Whom (what individuals or groups) will your inquiry benefit? How might your inquiry be of benefit to them (socially, economically, etc etc)? Show us how you are bringing some new perspective to an understudied area of this problem.
(To put this another way, this paper is where you tell us, enthusiastically, why you care about your issue, and why we should care as well.)
At the end of your Proposal. create a List of Relevant Sources in proper citation format and a short explanation of why each is helpful/relevant/has bearing on this topic.
We feel that it is important to open up further discussion and analysis of taking precautions while participating in any sports, whether it’s bowling, hiking, or wrestling. These three activities, were our skills we chose to write about during our genre exercises throughout the course. We were given the opportunity to participate in this research exercise as a team. We feel that this is a very fitting opportunity, as our skills were all related to sports, and most sports require participating with team members.
It is important to us, because such discussion would bring the following potential benefits to anyone who is willing to participate in any extraneous activities. Here are some examples for each of our skills:
• Selecting the correct ball
• Using good form while bowling.
• Correct shoes for the alley
• Packing emergency equipment
• Proper disposal of waste
• Good navigation skills
• Proper safety gear
• Proper form
• Good health condition
This discussion would foster awareness of the importance of being safe, and practicing good habits for anyone who wishes to participate in of these sports. These habits will foster positive experiences for all participants and team members if applied.
This awareness is important because following the proper rules and guidelines will harness safety, not only for themselves, but also for all other participants or perhaps other team members. For example: proper form in bowling can prevent wrist injuries as this is most common occurring injury in this sport, for hiking proper disposal of litter can prevent fire hazards, and in wrestling proper head gears can protect against brain injuries.
