Project #89612 - Final Research Paper

Research Project/Paper

The paper itself

* Select one of your papers to rewrite as a longer research paper. 7 Pages

Your research will then enhance your analysis of your text by researching any of the following:

- History of the text (Is the text’s history important? Does its history reveal anything about why the text is the way it is?)

- Culture surrounding the text (What culture was the text produced in? What culture is currently attached to the text?)

- Theories and philosophies that can be applied to the text (Does the text lend itself to gender discussions? Race discussions? Social class discussions? Psychological discussions? Etc.)

* Incorporate two of the sources that you researched into your essay not including your primary texts or any assigned readings. 

At core, your paper is still your semiotic analysis; however, often when analyzing semiotically, you are interpreting signs a particular way without necessarily using additional researched information to make sure that your claims are not off-base or weak. You will use your research to help support your analysis. It will not substitute for your analysis. Ideally, your paper will have analysis and research seamlessly integrated throughout with an approximate ratio of 70% analysis and 30% research.

In rewriting, you might add, delete, or change any parts of your essay. Rewrites involve your ideas, your grammar, and your organization. In some cases, students have changed their entire thesis because they realized that their thesis was faulty and weak. The goal is for you to look at what you originally wrote and determine its validity. If it is a weak argument that does not have the possibility of being substantiated, then you will need to change the argument completely. If it is a weak argument that has the potential to be stronger with more support, then that’s where your research will help you. 

The research project

1. Research a minimum of eight (8) secondary sources, not including your primary sources (e.g. lyrics, movies), encyclopedias, dictionaries, other general information sources, or assigned readings from the class. At least half of your sources must be from academic/scholarly journals.

2. Include an abstract for a minimum of 8 sources. A template to follow is included below.

3. Include a bibliography that notes all 8 secondary sources that helped contribute to your thinking and writing of your paper as well as your primary sources.

4. Include a works cited list that notes only the primary and secondary sources that you used directly in your paper (through summary, paraphrase, or direct quotation).

5. If your revisions and additions to your original paper are not at least 25% of your original paper, you will receive a zero on the research paper. You MUST make enough revisions for this to count as a separate assignment.

 

Summary of tasks:

* Bibliography of 8 sources

* Abstracts 8 total, one for each source.

* 7 Page Research Paper.

TOTAL: 7 Page paper + 8 page abstract + 1 page bibliography

I will upload all necessary files to write the essay.
