Objectives, (5) Hypothesis, (6) Definition of Terms, and (7) a Summary. The estimated length of this part of the

assignment is four pages.

1. Introduction: The student will need to introduce what the research proposal topic is about. See page 271

of your textbook. (Estimated length – one page)

2. Problem Statement: You need to identify a very specific problem within the stated topic. Do not let that

problem be too broad. It should be narrowed down to a specific problem that is researchable. Present that

problem in a general thesis statement stating why the problem is important enough to study. Include any

corrections or feedback you received from the Unit I Assignment. See page 43 of your textbook.

3. Rationale for the Research: You will need to explain what the study intends to accomplish. What rationale

was used to determine the importance for this study? How does your study relate to larger issues? Make

length – half a page)
