Individual Research Project: Part IV Instructions:
Your goal this week is to create a draft version of your report and to post your work in preparation for a peer review process. While the draft should be free of typos and grammatical errors, it may include a few “placeholders” to indicate ideas or paragraphs that are still being developed. For example, if you have four main issues you want to address in your research report, your draft might have one of the main topics still “under construction.” Of course, the more complete your draft, the better the feedback you will get to help you improve your final version.
Using the research material you gathered in the last three weeks as your foundation, prepare a draft version of a five to eight page (5-8 page) research paper addressing the key issues of your chosen topic. Draw conclusions about your findings and let your reader know what you think the future holds. By the end of the week you are responsible for posting your work to your Small Group Discussion Forum so that early next week your classmates have access to your work and can provide responsible evaluations. Make certain that you post to the correct Small Group Discussion Forum.
Additional resources for conducting and producing your research project are available in the document “Individual Research Project Resources” located in your Course Materials folder.
