Understanding the Assignment

Imagine that I'm in Mr. Sydow's English 102 class and that I have to do the research and prepare the same papers and presentations as his students do.

I start with the preparation phase. In this phase I have to get ready to for research and writing.

Step 1: Understanding the English 102 Requirements

I look at the class syllabus and any class handouts to see what I have to do and figure out how to get it all done well and on time.

Weeks 1-4: Essay #1
Weeks 5-8: Essay #2 & Annotated Bibliography
Weeks11-14: Essay #3 & Presentation

  1. Essay #1 = Proposed topic paper = my thoughts on  an issue/controversy related to my major/occupation
  2. Essay #2 = Exploratory paper = sourced with at least three different views on the topic
  3. Annotated Bibliography = at least 7 sources with annotations about the content, quality, and  usefulness of each source; must include books and articles as well as Web pages; cannot include Wikipedia
  4. Essay #3 = Final paper = argument/persuasive paper
  5. Presentation = I have to present my paper/findings to the class
Now that I have some idea of what is required and when it is due, it's time for me to pick a topic.
