A Research Project
While the author doesnt need to hide his personal opinion
he must be sure to use appropriate and accurate research to
support his or her ideas. Unlike the personal narrative the
research project requires
than the thoughts feelings
ideas and personal input of the author.
The essay that you create should clearly state your ideas and
opinions and show the reasoning behind your opinions as
well as identify the ideas youve located to back your opinions
through research. These ideas will work together to ultimately
show your learned expertise and your authority to write on
your chosen topic.
Remember that using others opinions or ideas in your own
words without giving the original author credit isnt proper
even if you agree with them or feel that they best explain your
own thoughts and feelings. When you include information
obtained from research youre obligated to cite that information
giving full and deserved credit to the original author. Always
remember that research should support your opinion and/or
viewpoint; you should ensure that your ideas and opinions (not
your researched information) are the main focus of your essay.
There are two distinct topic options for this particular assign-
ment. While each of these options has specific requirements
and expectations there is also a great deal of freedom
included with each. Because your essay is being created based
on your opinions/ideas and research no two completed essays
will be exactly alike.
