Respond to the following questions in four short paragraphs, one dedicated to each question.
- As you moved through this course, you were asked to complete various portions of research: proposal, outlines, annotated bibliography, and the research itself. These were designed to facilitate the process of learning about research and the steps that could/should be undertaken in order to stay organized and moving forward in the writing. Which did you find most beneficial to your progress? Overall, what surprised you the most about the research process?
- What do you still need to complete when it comes to your research paper in this course? What feedback has been most helpful, either from your instructor or your peers, in helping you identify necessary changes to make as you have moved toward completion of this project?
- What type of writing do you anticipate doing in the near future? How will research be a part of that?
- What “conversations” in your field do you plan to continue to take part in? Why? How will you do so? For instance, someone may be going into Criminal Justice but be particularly interested in conversing about the use of technology such as body cams to improve community-police relationships.
