I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.
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 (100-200 words).
