Write a research paper on a current topic of interest in your discipline or profession. If you are a business major, your topic must touch on some issue of diversity in business—for example, gender or race issues in the workplace, or communication with people from different cultures.
Your topic does not have to be cleared with me, although for most of you I will see the topic in your proposal. You are not required to use the same topic as the proposal, but I encourage you to do so. You will save yourself time and and build a better project this way by letting your research and thinking work on a particular problem at length. If you decide on a more specific, or slightly different version of the project after your proposal, you’re welcome to shift the focus of the report without clearing it with me.
You will be expected to gather information from outside sources (books, articles, personal or phone interviews, government documents, etc.). The documentation format to follow is APA (or MLA, if you are a history or English major).
If your major is anything other than English or history, you are to use the format specified by APA. English and history majors may use the format specified by MLA.
Grading will be complicated to reflect the complexity of a research report, so please examine the online rubric carefully to see the precise grading criteria. But generally here is what I will be looking at.
the correct format of the paper (using APA or MLA)
the accuracy and completeness of the References list or list of Works Cited at the end
the location and content of the parenthetical citations in the text itself
the accuracy, usefulness, and smoothness of insertion of quotes, paraphrases, and summaries
effective use of a logical organizational structure for the essay
a clear and effective statement of the thesis in paragraph one of the paper
effective body paragraphs that are unified, coherent, and complete. I will choose at least one at random at look at it very carefully
research that is recent, scholarly, and relevant to your topic, and sufficient in scope to make your case.
