english question and need guidance to help me learn.
Welcome to the quickest and least stressful research step! By this time, you have finished Step 2, so you have had a chance to really explore your research paper topic. In Step 1, the topic was just an idea with some early planning, but after Step 2, you now know whether or not your topic is viable or researchable.
To begin this assignment, compose your Step 3 answering the following prompt:
You have started to really investigate the possible potential of your research paper topic by compiling a Preliminary Bibliography (Step 2). As a direct result of the list of sources you created in Step 2, you have made some discoveries about your topic. For Step 3, I would like you to give me a quick Progress Report in regards to your research paper topic. Some questions to consider when completing this step can be any or all of the following:
Did your topic change completely? Do you have a brand new topic?
Did your original topic focus change a bit? Is it narrower or broader?
What is your new focus point? What question will you be attempting to answer or what point will you be attempting to prove?
What difficulties did you encounter while doing Step 2? Are you having trouble with your search terms? Your topic? The databases? Bibliographic citations?
In short, what can I do to help you to proceed from here?
Write your answer in a short paragraph (130-200 words).
You may submit/upload this assignment as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf.
When you have composed your Step, name and save your document, then upload the file by selecting “Submit Assignment.”
