3.students are expected to research and compose a paper based on the application of concepts and theories examined in class.
ies examined in class. This paper is not a literature review, though a literature review is part of your work. As this course takes place in a compressed timeline, I provided some suggestions for research topics. Feel free to use one of these as a springboard or propose your own.
At the end of the second week of class, students submit a three-page research paper prospectus. A research prospectus is a preliminary plan for conducting a study. This is not a detailed and technical research proposal, but rather, an analysis of the issues likely confronted in such a study. In essence, it is a preliminary proposal of work.
Research Paper Prospectus Elements
To complete the Research Paper Prospectus, consider the following elements. While the prospectus is limited to three pages of body content, remember, students must cover each of these areas as relevant to the plan for research:
Research Problem. What is the research problem? A problem is a situation when left untreated, produces a negative consequence for a group, an institution, or a(n) individual(s). What makes it a problem? For whom? Who says so?
Assumptions. On what assumptions is the work based? Which assumptions are verifiable in literature? Which assumptions are speculative?
Theoretical Issues. What theoretical issues arise from the study? For example, "theoretically," how is the problem and suspected results explained to other scholars? Is there a behavior view? A social systems view? Are there other theoretical orientations to consider in the study's design?
Literature Review. What, in general, does the literature say about the topic? While more development is expected for the final paper, a review of major theories, research, and writers in the field is needed.
Research Questions. Based on the problem, what are the research questions to be answered? How and why will answering the questions contribute to solving the research problem? Remember....a research question can only be answered with empirical data or information.
General Research Plan. In general, what research is necessary to answer the research question. What kind of data is needed? Specify the type, such as surveys, observations, or interviews. Who is to be studied and why? How is the data reduced and made sense of? How is the quality of the data assured?
Anticipated Difficulties and Pitfalls. What kind of difficulties and pitfalls are expected in a study of this nature? What can be done to prevent them or minimize their effects?
Anticipated Benefits. Who will benefit from the fact this research is undertaken? How? Why? Who might be disturbed by this proposed study? How? Why?
Paper Format Requirements
The Research Paper Prospectus is presented in standard APA 7 format, with a cover page, running head, body, and references list. The cover page and references do not count toward the three-page requirement. The body uses headers and in-text citations in the manner prescribed by APA. Students should include any references they know at the time they submit the prospectus, though it is expected the references may change or increase in number. Full and complete adherence to APA is required.
As APA format is the rule, remember the formatting rules shown on the Sample Paper (Links to an external site.):
Times New Roman, 12pt
1" margins on all sides
Double spaced, with extra line spaces removed (see below)
Page numbers in the upper right
Two spaces after concluding punctuation
150-250 word abstract with keywords
APA-style in-text citations and quote format. Use the Purdue OWL in-text citation information (Links to an external site.)to help you.
Alphabetical (by author) reference page with correct reference format. DO NOT trust the reference generator in your word processing program. It is WRONG! Use the Purdue OWL references information (Links to an external site.)to correctly structure references and do so manually.
4.Objective: To write a “newspaper” article based on the events in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
Characteristics of a Main News Story:
Characteristics of a Main News Story:
1. General Content: Start with the facts: who, what, when, where, how (feel free to fabricate unknown details for the purpose of this project)
2. Interviews: Provide no less than one “interview” in which characters involved are quoted in response to the event
3. Tone: Be objective in tone. A quality news story is devoid of opinion or conjecture. Represent both sides of the issue if multiple viewpoints exist. It may mean getting interviews from differing parties.
4. Headline: Don’t underestimate the importance of the headline. Reporters use sensationalized and emotionally charged language to catch the reader’s attention. This can be a challenge because you also keep a headline concise.
5. Structure: Inverted pyramid structure. Journalists usually describe the organization or structure of a news story as an inverted pyramid. The essential and most interesting elements of a story are put at the beginning, with supporting information following in order of diminishing importance.
6. Length: CPS: 500 words minimum; Hon: 600 words minimum
7. Format: MLA, submit a Google doc
1. The Pool of Tears
The inert gases are midaco (Mi), diddee (Di), dayzee (Da), and elbon (E). Midaco (Mi) is a noble gas but
as but does not have 8 valence electrons. The highest energy level of elbon (E) is its second energy level. Of these noble gases, diddee (Di) has the greatest atomic mass.
The alkali metals are sogo (So), zinn (Z), susu (Su), and squinto (Sq). Of these alkali metals, susu (Su) has the lowest atomic mass. Squinto is in the same period as diddee (Di).
The halogens are pertca (Pe), plutania (Pl), and swipp (Sp). Plutania (Pl) is in the same period as squinto (Sq) and diddee (Di).
The metalloids are yonon (Y), technaut (Tc), nutzat (Nu), and burnott (Bu). Burnott (Bu) is the metalloid with the highest atomic mass. Yonon (Y) is the metalloid with the lowest atomic mass. Technaut (Tc) and nutzat (Nu) are in the Group IV. Nu has more protons than Tc. The element called canz (Cz) is a metalloid by location but has properties that suggest it is a light metal.
The most metallic element on this planet is called sogo (So). The most chemically active nonmetal on the planet is called pertca (Pe). The lightest element on the planet is called zoop (Zp). The heaviest element on this planet is odarla (Od). It is highly radioactive.
The chemical makeup of the alien planet’s oceans seems to be about the same as Earth’s oceans. When seawater is distilled, the liquid that is boiled off and then condensed has been shown to have molecules consisting of two atoms of zoop (Zp) and one atom of Yubique (Yu). The solid left behind after the distillation consists mainly of a crystal made up of the elements zinn (Z) and swipp (Sp).
Alfurr (A), uz (Uz), and yubique (Yu) all gain two electrons. Yubique is diatomic. Uz has a smaller atomic number than alfurr.
The element blube (Bl) has only four protons in its atom.
Burgham (Bg) is a black crystal and has four electrons in its outermost energy level.
Both gurline (G) and bonji (Bo) have atoms with four energy levels, but gurline the less metallic of the two.
Tozzie (To), hailen (H), and burnott (Bu) are all members of Group V. Hailen has fewer total electrons than tozzie.
The element motana (M) tends to lose 3 electrons. The elements piddy (Pi) and klobb (Kl) both lose 2 electrons. Klobb loses them from its fifth energy level, while piddy loses them from its third.
