Homework The Research Paper will be a longer version of your position paper, just expanded with outside sources. The research proposal and outline let the reader know your topic, research question, and how you plan to expand your position paper. The research outline provides a road map of your ideas for the research paper, including your thesis, organization, and major ideas. The research proposal and outline assignment, due at end of week 4 in the Dropbox, is worth 60 points and should be 1-2 pages. Submit your assignment to the Dropbox located on the silver tab at the top of this page. For instructions on how to use the Dropbox, read these Step-by-Step Instructions or watch this Dropbox Tutorial. See Syllabus “Due Dates for Assignments & Exams” for due date information.
