I’m working on a english question and need an explanation to help me study.
Please share your research proposal topic here. Please phrase it in the traditional research proposal structure discussed last week:
(A) should/shouldn’t (B) because (C).
You only need to write one sentence to let me know what your topic will be; however, please make your sentence as detailed and developed as possible.
First, you should write the first part then work on the second part. Below this sentence is the second part of assignment.
Please select a source related to your chosen topic. Please evaluate your source using the following questions. Please write a minimum of 1-2 sentences for each question.
First, please include the details of your source in the format of a Works Cited entry. Then, answer the following questions.
1.) How current is the source? In most cases, the more current, the better, since the body of knowledge in most fields is constantly evolving, and of course current events are always changing the course of the broader narrative. If your source is more than three years old, please explain why you are choosing to use this source despite its age and how it remains relevant to your topic.
2.) How relevant is your source to your topic? Did you select the source based on a few key words, or does it actually have something to do with the your topic (or, at the very least, a topic related to your core topic). If the source is only minimally relevant, please discuss how you still may use it in your research proposal.
3.) Is your source authoritative? In other words, who wrote your source and why are they qualified to speak on the subject?
4.) Is the source, to your best knowledge, accurate? If you are not sure, are there at least signs that point to verifiable facts and connections to other accurate events? (For example, are there hyperlinks that link to other articles? Are other authoritative sources cited, do you find similar information if you look up similar sources, etc.)
5.) Lastly, in a little more detail, how do you plan to use this source in your essay? What will it add to your essay, and most importantly, how will it help you build your own argument?
