1) In chapter 12, there are several steps when one is planning a research project. Although, there is to some degree flexibility when doing such, one should certainly read and consider the procedures listed within this chapter. The first step of this is analyzing the assignments purpose, audience, and method of development. In this step, the writer has to see what exactly is being asked by the teacher. If this step is not considered first, the writer could lose points or entirely fail. It is very important to not only read about such a step, but to follow it exactly. This should be considered, even before topic selection. There are various types of papers such as informative, argument, and persuasive, and each must be approached differently. After this step, writing with the intended audience in mind. When doing so, one should think about their beliefs and the most effective ways that the writer can reach audiences and maintain interest to them. After completing this step, it is important for the individual to create a time schedule for when certain pieces should be completed. This helps a student not procrastinate with this paper, so that they can piece together each important aspect of the writing. Not to mention, most often teachers want students to turn in parts of the paper in sections, to insure they have a clear understanding of such. Only after this part, will the writer begin to choose and narrow down a topic. If the topic is about technology, they will then decide a good narrower topic to choose such as is technology making us stupid or smart. After deciding on this topic, the writer will begin to draft a hypothesis and research question. This is what the author desires to learn or discover through this assignment. Next is setting up a research log, where snippets of information are gathered and so forth. After doing so, reread the writing and put together in organizational manner. Later, share what you learned and how the issue can be understood and used to help.
2) In chapter 13, we learned about how to find information that is worthy of being utilized in our papers. There are certainly several ways in which this can be done. Although, most of us are familiarized, and plan to use internet based searches, these methods should not be used for this section of the assignment. The two methods I would like to discuss would be finding information in books located in the Library and interviewing someone that has a lot of understanding on the topic at hand. These two methods are not the only explained in this chapter, however, I feel both are great means to find information that may be disregarded. Most often, since technology is very convenient and our second nature, we only use these forums to find the information on our topics. I cannot even remember the last time I read a book to do a paper. However, books can contain a lot of valid and interesting information that cannot be found online. Even though, many books can be found online, I feel that checking out a book is a lot better. The environment of a library can be very relaxing. Conducting interviews is also a way that we can gain insight on the topic at hand. This cannot be done online or offline. One can easily obtain an email address of a professional and simply send the questions while explaining the purpose of the interview as well. By doing so, one will have direct contact with the person who knows a lot about the topic, and the individual will have an advantage. The person conducting the interview can easily construct which questions they want answered to help find out valuable information about the topic. Not to mention, that personal experience and situations can be shown by the one being interviewed. The information will be interesting to not only the one who’s doing the interview but to the audience members that will hear the information being presented as well. Both interviews and books can be increasingly helpful when writing a paper. The information presented is not found online, where most people conduct research, therefore the information may be new to audiences and help in the purposes.
3) Chapter 14 is dedicating to the topic of evaluating information. Not every source is a good source, as I learned in this section. One must consider the relevance as well as the reliability of an article. The relevance deals with the article being similar with the topic you have selected. How many times have you found an article that appears to deal with the chosen topic, however, only a small section is of that nature. Reliability is ensuring that the article can help one learn and prosper from the information presented. Will it be a good match or not? Will it help the individual with their specific expectations and purposes, or only hinder it? Is the article credible or appears to have biases in some form or another? Each of these questions should be determined before deciding to use the specific article or not. Three specific ways that one can test the reliability of the article at hand would include : checking the date of publication (within a few years is more reliable than an older source), can the information be verified, and lastly and lastly do other papers contradict what is being stated in this.
