Step 7: Describe your work
Write two or three paragraphs (200-250 words total) describing what you have learned about formulating a research question, selecting sources, and formatting. Do not take up space in the paragraph with your research question or the titles of the sources. Do not write in first person (I, me, our) or in second person (you).
Here is an example of the kind of writing you will need. Do not copy or paraphrase this paragraph. Each student’s experience will be different and will yield a different account. This example is only one paragraph, but you will write two.
Writing a good research question and selecting quality sources requires some background knowledge of the subject. For example, research on Magna Carta requires the student to know something about the historical context including the time period and the people involved. This is also essential for selecting appropriate sources. In a cursory search for sources, many of the book and articles are about the lasting impact of the document and are focused on a much later time period.
Type your paragraphs into the bibliography as shown in the sample format.
Finish and Submit
Review Steps 1-7 above. Check your work to make sure it is accurate and complete. Proofread your paragraphs to eliminate writing mistakes.
Save your work as a Word document and submit it in Blackboard.
