Part 1 of the I-Search: What I know, assume, or imagine:
Due Wednesday, October 28th to Digication
What I Know, Assume, or Imagine
Before conducting any formal research, write a section in which you explain to the reader what you think you know, what you assume or what you imagine about your topic. For example, if you decided to investigate teenage alcoholism, you might want to offer some ideas about the causes of teenage alcoholism, provide an estimate of the severity of the problem, and create a portrait of a typical teenage drinker, and so on. This section can tell the story of how you came to be interested in your topic.
Part 2: Research
If you gather material from here, it is not necessary to complete a website evaluation form. http://lam.alaska.gov/sled/research
The note taking form should be completed as you collect research.
Part 3: Writing and Reflection
Compose your drafts and receive peer and instructor feedback. Write a revision letter before your final draft.
Post your entire process to Digication.
1. What part of writing this paper took the most time? Perhaps you had trouble finding a topic or expressing a particular idea. Maybe you agonized over a single word or phrase. Be specific when you answer this question.
2. What is the most significant difference between your first draft and this final version?
Explain if you changed your approach to the subject, if you reorganized the paper in any significant way, or if you added or deleted any major details.
3. What do you think is the best part of your paper?
Explain why a particular sentence, paragraph, or idea pleases you.
4. What part of this paper could still be improved?
Again, be specific. There may be a troublesome sentence in the paper or an idea that isn't expressed as clearly as you would like it to be.
Complete this as your research. Upload to Digication as you go:
