Gen 103 week 1 assignment (2)

  

Considering Your Research Topic

 Over the five weeks of this class, you will put the information that you learn about information literacy into action by applying it to the research process. Each week, you will learn and practice new research skills, systematically working toward the goal of building an annotated bibliography, which is a list of sources with one to two paragraphs describing each source. Take a minute now to watch the What is an Annotated Bibliography? video and look at the Week Five Annotated Bibliography example so that you will know what you are working toward. 

The first thing that you need to start working on for your annotated bibliography is a topic. Although you do not have to finalize your topic until next week, you should start thinking about it now. You are encouraged to choose a topic that is related to your major and that you find interesting. You will be working with this topic for the full five weeks of this class, so it should be something that you will not get bored with. If you have difficulty thinking of a topic, you can look at this list for ideas.
 

This week’s assignment is to write a short essay discussing your thoughts about and past experiences with research as well as the topic that you are considering for your annotated bibliography. Be sure to use the template provided and write an essay that addresses the following requirements:

  • At least one experience you      have had doing research in the past. This can be research for a school      project or personal research, like if you have done research before a big      move or before a major purchase. 
  • At least one aspect of the      annotated bibliography project that concerns you or one aspect of the      annotated bibliography project that excites you. 
  • The topic that you are      considering for your annotated bibliography.

Your paper must:

  • Be written in the first person      (I, me, my, etc.).
  • Be one to two pages long      (excluding title page and reference page)
  • Demonstrate correct spelling      and grammar (Use Grammarly for help with spelling and grammar difficulties.) 
  • Use correct APA citations of      outside sources.
