Writing Project 2: Source Social Network + Research Narrative Essay WHY ARE WE DOING THIS PROJECT? This project invites you to engage in research as inquiry, conversation, and rhetorical practice toward goals of creating new knowledge and enacting change in the world. During the unit, we will learn about and apply responsible research practices. We will also explore the social contexts in which research and researched writing exists. Writing and information does not exist in a vacuum, and this unit will help you learn to pull back the curtain and look behind the scenes to learn about the context in which sources are published and distributed and how sources “speak” to each other. We will also examine how research and information is presented in different genres. Once you have explored key sources to understand the conversation around your topic, you will start to enter that conversation yourself as a writer and researcher. You will take a position on the issue and offer ideas for action. In Writing Project 3, you will forward those ideas for action by creating texts in a variety of genres to share your research with different audiences. WHAT IS THIS PROJECT? Building on what we learned in Unit 1 about the power of writing, rhetoric, and information to create change, you will ● ● ● ● ● select a topic to investigate and explore for the remainder of the semester formulate a research question to guide your research & writing process gather & evaluate sources put the sources in conversation with one another in a “source social network” synthesize your sources in an essay that narrates your process of discovery, describes the conversation around the topic, and comes to conclusions for thought & action This project consists of 2 parts. PART 1: Create a “source social network.” You will gather strong, credible sources that help you learn more about your chosen topic. As you gather, explore, and finally select each source (around 6 sources total for individual projects, at least 1 academic sourse), you will add that source to your “social network” around that topic. You can design your “Source Social Network” however you want (feel free to get visual and creative here!). You will need to include 1) credible, diverse sources that help you and your readers to get a full sense of the conversation around the topic 2) a detailed and accurate description of the rhetorical context of each source 3) a strong, detailed reflection/description of what you learned from the source 4) a meaningful and complex description of how each source relates and “speaks” to the other sources included in the social network, demonstrating an understanding of the “conversation” around this specific topic 5) a logical and creative design to help guide the reader through the “social network” so that the reader can easily see the rhetorical context of each source and the emerging conversation presented PART 2: Compose a research narrative. In this essay, you will discuss your prior knowledge of the topic and how this knowledge was expanded through your research. You will also describe your personal stakes in the topic and your research question. Then, you will use what you found in your “source social network” to synthesize information to create an overview of the topic for your readers. You will conclude with a clear position on the issues/problems that you present in your overview and offer ideas/recommendations for action. You will need to include 1) a clear, specific reflection on your past knowledge of the topic 2) a focused, clearly defined research question that is open-ended and feasible for investigation that addresses a practical problem, need, or issue 3) a clear, specific reflection on how your knowledge of the topic was broadened and deepened through the research process 4) a synthesis of your research findings to provide a clear and useful explanation of the current “conversation” around the topic, sharing your understanding of the problems or issues 5) an appropriate blend of summary, paraphrase, and quotation to support your explanation in #4 6) a works cited that includes the sources in your “source social network” as well as any other sources that you cite in your narrative ...
