Preliminary Research Proposal: This is the first effort on paper that will lead to Paper 4 eventually. Students will develop ideas and write to describe their independent and dependent variables and a causal argument that explains why they are correlated. The paper will also include the beginnings of an annotated bibliography or a literature review. The more you write means the more I can give feedback on, but at a minimum we will need to see the basics: what is your theory and variables and at least four academic sources of scholarship on your topic. 5-6 pages. Due week 7. While it is not required for Paper 2, I strongly recommend you use the Writing Center prior to submission. More info on what is expected will come in class. This paper is a high feedback assignment.
