compass icon-01.png Overview:

In Unit 1, we have been reading the published writing of other writers critically in order to begin developing our own “invitations” into topics that interest us. We used textual analysis to break down the context, voice, thesis, and other elements of existing written texts. We also used invention strategies to begin exploring specific issues that interest us as we read and reflect. Finally, we exercised our critical literacy skills in order to evaluate the content and context of sources. For this Unit 1 Assignment, we will put these research and invention skills to work in the creation of a research proposal that gives shape to the general topic and specific issue we want to pursue the basis of our larger research project for this course.

Write a brief research proposal in which you identify a topic that you want to address and define the existing context for the topic, including how different groups have engaged with the topic.

Your research proposal should

  • offer a specific research question and thesis for your proposed project
  • provide enough context to explain why the topic is relevant and how it has been addressed by other writers
  • make clear how your project will add new insight to a contested issue relevant to the topic, whether through offering new information or analysis, proposing a solution, or extending existing perspectives in novel ways
