Project #46763 - Course Project

I will need a first second and final draft for different weeks in my online class I've wanting to to the final project on Bullying.

The objectives of the Course Project are to fulfill this course’s terminal course objectives:


    1. Given an essay or scholarly article in any media, develop an informed opinion which includes external evidence and personal experience.


    1. Given persuasive rhetorical strategies, such as appeals to reasoning, credibility and emotion, demonstrate the strategies to advance an argument.


    1. Given a student-selected topic, organize ideas through prewriting tasks and prepare a persuasive draft.


    1. Given strategies for determining the quality of source material, evaluate scholarly articles and other types of source material to assess their appropriateness for a research project.


    1. Given various strategies for presenting research, compare and contrast the ways to communicate research findings to an audience.


    1. Given the conventions for attributing source material, create appropriate citations, such as through summary, paraphrase, in-text, and reference citations.


  1. Given a sample of writing requiring revision, refine and develop ideas in order to convey new knowledge that reflects original thought.

Through the Course Project, students will engage in writing about a real-world topic that is aimed at a specified reader in the form of an argument.


Skillful argument-based writing will serve you well, in many ways, beyond this class. Both in other classes and on the job, the research paper you learn in this class will take on new forms, such as analytical reports, proposals, reports, and white papers. Writers who achieve success through these important kinds of documents know how to present an argument and support it logically and persuasively using relevant, attributed source material. 


The Course Project will address a topic within one of four course themes:  education, technology, family, or health and wellness. Each topic encompasses the potential for controversy, which means there is more than one valid way of looking at the issue and presenting the issue to an audience. The paper will introduce the topic, provide background information, present a main argument with evidence, and conclude in a way that clearly leads a reader to take desired or recommended action. 




After thoroughly reading and researching a topic, complete the weekly assignments addressing a topic from one of the course themes, leading to two drafts that are revised in a final 8- to 10-page research project.


The purpose of the assignment is to present an argument and support it persuasively with relevant, properly attributed source material. The primary audience for the project will be determined in prewriting tasks. The secondary audience is an academic audience that includes your professor and fellow classmates.


Course assignments will help you develop your interest in a theme and topic, engage in discussion with your professor and classmates, and then learn to apply search strategies to retrieve quality sources.


By the end of the course, you will submit a Course Project that meets the requirements for scope and which includes the following content areas.


    1. Introduction
      1. Attention-getting hook
      2. Topic, purpose, and thesis
      3. Background
      4. Relevance to reader


    1. Body
      Logically presented, point-by-point argument with evidence
      (the number of sections may differ by paper, but you should plan to have at least three)
      1. Section 1 (2–5 paragraphs)
      2. Section 2 (2–5 paragraphs)
      3. Section 3 (2–5 paragraphs)
      4. Section 4 (2–5 paragraphs)
      5. Section 5 (2–5 paragraphs)


  1. Conclusion


Assignment Requirements

Research Project Topics


Course Theme Reading List


Research on your topics begins with the Course Theme Reading List, which is linked under the Textbook section of the Course Syllabus. Be sure to click the word here to open the document. While you are not required to read all of the resources, you should plan to dedicate sufficient time to retrieve, preview, and critically analyze sources on topics that are of interest to you. The list of readings has been selected to help you narrow a topic, and it also will help you generate search terms you can use to continue your independent research. 


Two readings are available for each of the topics listed below. Start your research process by reviewing the Course Theme Reading List. Note:  All students will be required in their final Course Project to include at least one source from the Course Theme Reading List. Once you are introduced to library search strategies, you will then search for the remaining number of sources required for inclusion in-text and on the References page of the final assignment. The table below lists the themes and topics for the Course Project.
