Essay 3: Narrative Research EssayDue Dec. 4th
The purpose of this assignment is not to write a full-fledged research paper that could be published in a peer reviewed journal, but to write a paper reflecting on the process of doing research and how your research could be used to expand Essay 1 or Essay 2.
So far in the research process, you’ve have created rough arguments for Essay 1 and Essay 2. You’ve received a lot of peer feedback for your essays, and you’ll receive instructor feedback. Through our Bibliography and Annotated Bibliography assignments, we’ve done a bit more research to expand our understanding of the subject. So, you could rewrite your essay to say more. However, I’m most interested in the HOW, not necessarily the final product (the what).
For this essay, I would like you to discuss your experience working with the PCC Library databases, to construct your Bibliography and Annotated Bibliography and how you would use your research to expand Essay 1 or Essay 2. Here’s what I would like you to cover:
In at least one paragraph, tell me about the process of conducting research using the databases. What problems did you run into? What successes did you have?
In following paragraphs, go on to discuss the sources you’ve found and included in your annotated bibliography. This is where you annotations come into play. They should help you in writing this section of your paper.
When discussing each source, explain why it’s important and how it will improve Essay 1 or Essay 2.
How could you go about pulling these sources into Essay 1 or Essay 2 to revise the essay?
In addition, discuss how you would incorporate your new evidence to expand Essay 1 or Essay 2.
What ideas in your essay might you need to rework/rethink in light of this new information?
What areas of your original essay might you need to cut?
What areas might you need to expand?
Finally, what are areas for further research?
If you had more time, what might you want to work on next when it comes to your essay?
Here are some other guidelines:
When writing your essay, yes, I want you to use the first person, “I.” You’re telling me about your journey, so you’ll need to speak from your perspective.
Make sure to use MLA format and to cite all the sources in your works cited.
This should be a short essay; three pages should be sufficient.
Don’t get bogged down in the “Am I doing this right?” questions. Just write. 🙂
