profileMasaira

Instructions
For this assignment, you will select a topic different from the pro topic you worked on in Weeks 1-2. Conduct research on the topic and locate articles that takes a clear con position.

Next, develop a con-position proposal for this new topic. The goal of the proposal is to create a working thesis statement and basic research plan that considers context, audience, purpose, and presents potential sources. A proposal is not an outline, as it does not structure the paper. Rather, a proposal offers direction for research needs and gives your professor an opportunity to provide feedback before the drafting process.

Access the Con-Position Proposal Template and complete the six required sections:

  • Subject
  • Research Question
  • Claim
  • Research Plan
  • Synthesis Matrix (Add the 3 con sources.)
  • Reference Page

For an example proposal, refer to pages 269-270 of our textbook.
