Project Proposal

Directions:

  • On your name page, start a new page titled Project Proposal followed by your name or initials.
  • On your project proposal page, before you come in for your conference, please answer the following questions:
    • What societal problem or problems have you identified while researching your topic?
    • What are the causes of this problem? Was it intentional? Are there extenuating circumstances?
    • What can we do about it? Is there any action that can be taken to change this? What action has been already attempted to address this problem? Why wasn't it successful?

The first part of the proposal should be complete by the time you come in for your conference.


After reading chapter 5 and attending your conference, develop a preliminary thesis addressing the problem you are working with and it's cause(s). Then answer the following questions:

  • In what ways is this thesis and topic challenging (p.108)?
  • How is this thesis and topic compelling (p.108)?
  • In what ways is this thesis and topic debatable or controversial (p. 109)?

The second part of the proposal should be complete by class time Tuesday, March 3
