Research Paper Requirement
A written Research Paper
using APA format is a required component of this course. I strongly
suggest that you begin work on the research paper early in the course and
continue to work on it consistently throughout. To accomplish this, steps
to completing the Research Paper have been placed throughout the Learning Plans
Each week throughout the quarter you
will be learning content that will help you write your final paper in this
course, a formal proposal paper. The assignments for each week will build
on each other and attribute to the final paper (except for LP2). It is
important to stay on top of your coursework to ensure you do not fall behind
since each week’s assignment will be a piece of the final paper. This is
a writing-intensive course so be sure to review the requirements for the final
paper. You can find the rubric under the “Technical Communications
Rubric” link under Course Information.
