Research Paper Draft - First Draft - RE



The first draft of the research paper is due at the end of Week 6 to the Dropbox. It should be 3-4 pages and is worth 60 points.

The assignment for this week should be very helpful in completing the research process that ends with the final research paper. You will receive feedback from the instructor on this first draft of your paper, and this should help you to improve your paper.

This week’s assignment is the research paper draft, which will consist of the first three sections of the final paper, including the first section of the introduction and thesis statement, and the second and third sections consisting of the problem. These sections were briefly explained in Week 4’s Lecture and will be explained more fully below.

The first draft of the paper should be 3-4 pages and is worth 60 points. It is due at the end of the week to the dropbox.

Below, you’ll learn about concepts of the research paper draft: plagiarism, support, and a Google exercise. Then, you’ll learn about content and format of the first draft of the research paper as well as criteria for how this draft will be graded.

Your research should come from points you have in your position paper. Your position paper, which you turned into the Dropbox at the end of Week 4, has been graded and given back to you in the Dropbox. Download and read it, as your instructor has given you feedback with the intention of helping you improve. Also, look at the research-paper outline, as it may also have already been graded and given back to you in the Dropbox. Be sure to address any errors you may have, so that they are not repeated. Follow the three steps below to add credible support to your paper.

Step 1: Search your research sources so that you have support for ideas from your research outline. Once you have a researched idea, you must determine whether you're going to quote, paraphrase, or summarize the idea.

Step 2: Determine whether your researched idea should be quoted, paraphrased, or summarized. Look through the four criteria for quotations below to determine whether or not your idea adheres to one of them. If it does, quote; if it does not, you must summarize or paraphrase. Generally, you will want to summarize or paraphrase information. If this paper was a literary analysis, you would want to quote frequently, as much of your information would be colorful. The same concept is not true for nonliterary papers. Think of it this way: When you quote, you are recycling lifeless, untouched information, as if buried 6 feet under from one source to the next or even to your own paper; you are taking the same “dead” information from graveyard to graveyard and just rearranging the headstones. Instead, you want information to “live” and inhabit new forms and habitats. Also, you want readers to see your wording as a writer and emerging researcher, and by definition, this cannot be done when you quote.

So, if the idea adheres to one of the criteria above, it should be quoted. If not, it should be summarized or paraphrased. If you want to include all of the major ideas, but the details go off topic or are not relevant to your topic, then summarize them. If you want to include both the major ideas and minor details, then paraphrase them. Be sure to follow the criteria mentioned in Lecture for Week 2 for paraphrasing:

S: be accurate with the idea

S: have the synonyms so you're changing up the wording

S: shuffle or restructure so you're changing up the sentence structure

R: retain the same major and minor ideas

Step 3: Include the citation in the sentence—before the ending period. If an idea is common knowledge or appears in two separate research sources that are unrelated to one another, then you may consider it common knowledge, and no citation is needed. (This is considered shared knowledge.) Be sure to summarize or paraphrase the information; you do not just need to include a citation.
