My topic is what is the ideal work environment?
Project 1 asks you to develop your knowledge of the research process and to engage in finding
and evaluating different types of sources. You will start by choosing a potential topic and
identifying a research question from a set of exercises you will do as part of your class work,
along with guidance from your instructor. The topic and research question will be used for the
exploratory research essay in the next project. Once your topic is chosen and you are thinking
of a research question, you will begin to gather sources — you’ll need a minimum of 5 sources
for Project 1: Research Planning Report. This report should be a minimum of 750 words and run
about 3-5 pages.
In Project 1, you will engage with each source to determine their appropriateness for use in
Project 2, and explain how and why you came to this decision. It is common for students to find
sources that are “close, but not quite” in Project 1, and rather than discarding these sources or
assuming any source that is “close enough” is acceptable, students will critically analyze their
sources’ relevance to their larger research efforts, and determine additional sources that might
You are writing a 750-word minimum (3-5 pages) Research Planning Report that presents an
overview of your topic, the research question that guides your exploration, and the sources
you find in this part of the research process. In Project 1 you will: evaluate the sources you’ve
found so far (5 minimum), analyze why you discarded or kept certain sources, identify areas
you still need to explore or predict further research you need to conduct to gather additional
useful sources, and suggest a potential approach or ideas around which you might organize and
present this research in Project 2.
You’ll also incorporate ideas from the project readings about research and rhetorical concepts.
You will consider the following questions when beginning your research: “What do I know
about research and sources? How do I know which sources are right for my purpose? How do I
evaluate sources?” Project 1 will act as preparation for the research essay, and the sources you
find in Project 1 will carry over to Project 2.
This project will focus our attention on key concepts about writing that will serve you not only
in the rest of this class, but also in the rest of your degree work and beyond. You’ll develop an
understanding of academic research expectations and writing concepts like audience, purpose,
knowledge, analysis, and others that help you improve your writing in future situations,
especially in academic and research-based writing.
In Project 1, you will think rhetorically about your topic and also project/anticipate how you will
attempt to complete the research essay in Project 2. All submitted work should be in the
format appropriate to your topic — which might be APA format or MLA format (or another
academic format you choose like Chicago, with instructor approval) — and it should include a
bibliography (i.e. References in APA format) that does not count towards the final page count
and in-text citations according to the citation style you are using.
