For 22.1.18

On Dropbox by next Sunday, please share a .doc file with these four parts, numbered, and in this order.

  1. Your current research question
  2. Your current argument
  3. Acknowledgements
  4. Task prompts for Different Levels

1. Your current research question

At the top of your page, state your current research question in all of its glorious four parts

  • Stating and restating your research question will help you and your readers (especially me) keep our eyes on the ball
  • When you change your question, offer a brief commentary on how and why

2. Your current argument

In a paragraph or two, present your main argument

  • To do this you will need to read and basically outline Craft Chapter 7: Making Good Arguments

3. Acknowledgements

Compare and contrast different positions held by two of your sources and as they are in conversation with each other and you are in conversation with them.

4. Task prompts for Different Levels

Using the “Task Prompts for Different Levels”, prepare a paragraph where you explains what you learned by comparing your writing thus far to this larger list of thinking levels and activities. Identify what activities, if you had the chance, you might do next to elevate your research.
