Transcript of RES104 Research Process Timeline-Day 2

No professor selected topics here. You pick your poison. So choose something that interests you. Important way to narrow down your topic It's the question you're trying to answer in your paper. Remember ENG101? That unit where the librarians came into class? We did all of this, except the finding sources part. And that's what we're here for in this class! This is the reading, highlighting, underlining, spilling coffee on and annotating part of the process. Sort of like a topic sentence. Only, this topic sentence is the A to your Research Question's Q! Paragraph explaining what the source is, what it talks about, and how you will use it to answer your research question + the citations (in proper format) of the sources you used Organizing your ideas and evidence into a logical argument and structure Putting it all together for the first time. Filling in the arguments from your outline and making it look all pretty. Letting your peers and professor read and review your paper. Then you take their comments and suggestions and improve your paper for the next round. Hallelujah!! You're finally done!! But today, we're just going to focus on these two! Research writing process Just what does that entail? And that's what your professor and the librarians are here to help with!! Easy peasy right? Oh, and don't think because we put them in a timeline that you have to stick to that order. There's nothing wrong with revising your thesis once you write your outline, or tweaking your research question after your first draft. Take my word for it. I'd show you other options on here, but I don't want to make you sea sick!! It's what drives your research. Topics PDF encyclopedia articles what you already know web searches Do your annotations right away as you read the article. Looking at the main arguments and supporting evidence in the articles for your annotations will help you fill out your outline later. It seems a bit like cheating, but the evidence you find to help you answer your research question/write a thesis, is the same evidence you use to prove it's the right answer! This is why these 2 are so important. They form the backbone of your paper. One represents the why you're researching; the other, what you've found. They are a matched set.
