Seriously, no class has infuriated me as much as this one. Because you literally have to make it as absolutely basic as possible.
Many different colleges and universities consider ACE CREDIT recommendations in determining the applicability to their course and degree programs.
Introduction: Research is Never a Waste of Time, But Always Make Good Use of Your Time.
This audio file is a supplement to the text portion of this packet, and is meant to be listened to the powerpoint slide.
Background Knowledge: By this point, a student should have been exposed to basic research techniques and have a minimum of 3-5 sources to begin to write from.
Overwhelming though a project may be, starting at the foothills of a new thread of research is a great privilege, and is best approached as an opportunity to learn rather than a drudgery.
As a researcher/writer, you have the chance to dive more deeply into less frequently encountered pools of knowledge.Track down some statistics, fluff it up, make sure you’re citations are correct, and hit submit. You literally need to meet points on the rubric, and not a single thing more.Send your outline to your mentor for a cursory glance before submitting to make sure you don’t have to rework more down the road. After multiple revisions to “Contemporary Management Styles in the Modern Workplace”, I now know why. Try to write about something that interests you or is relevant to your field so that you won’t be bored by the research.One of the joys and privileges of research is being able to follow your curiosity; if you are truly curious about your topic, and authentically driven to find out as much as you can, then even the articles you don't find interesting will be useful for a future project, and no energy will be wasted.Well, you've been researching for a while now, and you are now ready to settle down on a specific topic.It is natural to stand at the beginning of a research project and feel overwhelmed by the amount of published research that exists in databases, literature reviews, and reference pages.At the same time, each new research project brings the hope of discovering something new.In summary, the steps outlined in this learning packet encourage academic writers who want to increase the precision of the topics they write about to go through a process.This learning packet has broken down the process of selecting a topic into two large steps - choosing a topic and narrowing it down.If you compare the following example with the previous step, you might notice how the context of decomposition moves from just a generalized process of decomposition to a particular process that involves household waste.In addition, this example makes a firm statement that can be argued and supported.
