How do I determine the conventions of an academic conversation?

How do I determine the article's historical placement within the topic's history?

What are the conventions of peer review in an academic setting?

Project Two: What They Say: Tracing Conversations over Time

How do I construct a thesis that makes a claim about the conversation over time?

How can I successfully incorporate source material into my own work?

What are the conventions that an academic audience expects from this type of essay, and why are they important?
Project Three: What I Say: Joining the Conversation and Remediating My Argument
How do I make claims that the academic community will pay attention to?

How does research and evidence bolster my argument?
What different forms can an argument take?

How can I attempt to persuade different audiences through changes in medium? How does the medium affect the audience?

How do the choices I make as an author/composer affect my argument, and how can I make these consciously to improve my claim?
