Writing Assignment #2: I Search Topic
Peer Review Due: June 7—have a copy of your draft to share with a partner
Final Revision Due: June 14, 2021
750-1000 words, Double- spaced
* Include an engaging title

1. Read 3 sample I-Search Final Draft papers, written by Gwen’s former 1B students: Click on “Sample Papers” located in our Resource Directory.
Read I-Search Final Draft sample papers, not other sample assignments!
2. For your thesis, think about how this I Search Topic process was for you. Was coming up with a topic and reading the sample papers inspiring? confusing? intriguing? (These are just possibilities for a focus) The assignment asks for this thesis at the end of your introduction, but if it makes more sense to place this in your conclusion, that’s fine.
3. Write the following Formal Writing Assignment, “I-Search Topics” (minimum 750 words). Submit it to link on the cyber campus website. Be sure to hit the FINAL SUBMIT button—it is the one after the submit draft button.
Discuss I-Search topics in general and your topic in particular. Address ALL of the following questions:
1. Which Sample I-Search Final Draft papers “grabbed” you? Why?
2. Did reading these sample papers affect your own topic choice?
3. What is YOUR I-Search topic and why did it choose you?
4. Why–and how–will you avoid any instances of plagiarism in your I-Search paper?
5. What “modes of development” might you use in your I-Search paper? Comparison/contrast? Cause and effect? Illustration? Definition? Analysis? Some combination of the above? See Raimes pp.27-33
o Include at least one direct quote from one of the Sample Papers. Use an in-text citation to document the quote.
o Create a References Page: document each sample paper you read, in a References Page. See the APA Blog for examples:
