Question description

In this assignment, you will develop a research plan for the week seven persuasive paper. You will consider questions to ask when thinking about your topic, and search out two credible sources to support your writing. Please complete all of the following in your assignment:

  1. First, decide on a topic for the persuasive essay. The topic should be related to an issue within your career field (review the possible list of topics on the week seven individual work page, or choose one of your own, with your instructor's permission). Respond to each of the following for your research plan on the topic you've chosen:
    • What is your topic and what prompted you to choose this topic?
    • What questions do you have about this topic that you would like to research? Provide a brief list of the questions (three to five).
    • Choose at least one question and adapt it into a statement that might become the basis for your thesis statement.
    • What difficulties do you anticipate in conducting your research?
  2. Second, find two sources that will support your topic. Make sure that one is an academic journal article (refer to the LIRN searching steps in discussion); the other may be a credible website, if you like (refer to the acceptable versus unacceptable sources document). Use APA format to cite the reference page citations for each source.
  3. Third, provide responses to the following for each of your two sources. Each response should be one to three sentences:
    • Does the source report on information experienced directly by the author or is it more of a summary of information from other sources? Provide an explanation.
    • Is the information current (published within the last five years)? If it is a website source, when was the information last updated?  Will there be any issues with using this source for your writing? (Is it too outdated because the subject area has changed since publication?)
    • What makes this source credible and how will it work for your persuasive writing?

For this assignment, you will be looking for sources related to a persuasive topic you will write on for week 7 (see the list in the week seven assignment, or speak to the instructor about an alternate topic idea).
