The writing and researching involved in this essay will give
you a better sense of what research is and how and why it is done. The
assignment will orient you to the FNC libraries and their various resources,
and help you gain a better understanding of different types of writing and
Paper #1: A
description of a CURRENT (within the last 12 months) topic or development in
your field and an explanation of its significance to those outside of the
field. Students can also choose a topic from the list of Research Topics
provided by the instructor.
Audience: Students new to your major who have a curiosity or
research interest in this particular topic but no prior specialized knowledge
of the topic; your English 3311 teacher
Length: at least 3 pages, not counting references page
There are two basic tasks to fulfill in this paper:
â€“ to describe this
topic or development as clearly and concisely as possible for the specified
audience; in other words, to educate your audience about this topic as thoroughly
as possible given the space constraints.
â€“ to make a
compelling, specific, and explicit case explaining obvious and not-so-obvious
reasons this development is important to the world outside your major.
It may help you to think in terms of a little role-playing
to imagine how this assignment might match real-world expectations: You are
doing research or making something closely related to this topic. Your company,
department, or division needs funds to begin your research or project. To be
awarded these funds, you need to go in front of a group of people and provide
them some necessary background as they make their decision. This could be an
internal or external group: a board of directors, a grant committee, a
government agency, a venture capital firm, among other possibilities. You canâ€™t
assume (ever!) that every member of the group making the funding decision is
familiar with your topic.
We need to understand and be responsible for the terminology
we use given the audience for whom we write.
This means that you need to decide for yourself how much members of the
specified audience already know about the topic and its terminology, and how
much those student doesnâ€™t know. This will help you in turn decide what kind of
vocabulary, detail, and tone will be appropriate for your writing.
Youâ€™ll also need to decide what kind of research is
appropriate for the paper. Many of you
will rely heavily on popular sources for this paper, though scholarly sources
will be helpful or necessary in certain cases. I will require in-text citations
and a references page in the citation style of your choice. That references
page should include a variety of source material, so that your reader will
understand that you are not simply repeating one or two sources without considering
audience and purpose.
You will receive a provisional grade on this paper. If you
choose to revise the paper, that provisional grade will be entirely replaced by
the final grade.
Choose ONE topic from the list below for your Research Papers. After you finish completing the exercises for
this week, you can begin thinking about the topics for your papers which will
be due later on this semester–during Weeks Four and Week Six.
