Research Proposal Assignment
Proposals are one of the most common types of writing people encounter professionally, whether in academia or not. How can you convince your dissertation committee that you have a good idea in mind for your research and that you know enough to get started? How can you convince your supervisor that you have a better idea for using the department funding in the workplace? How can you convince the city council that funds should be spent to convert a lot into a park in your neighborhood? How can you get the National Science Foundation to fund your groundbreaking research? Proposals!
A written proposal is meant to communicate to your reader what you propose to do, how you propose to do it, and why it is important. It is like a blueprint between you and your instructor/director/employer for what you think should be done and how it should be done. This blueprint, however, can and will change somewhat as the research progresses. What you think you will claim now, having done strong preliminary reading, may not be what you claim as you find additional evidence.
One common misunderstanding that people writing their first proposals have is that they believe they have to accomplish their entire project in miniature in order to propose that project. Students frequently find themselves writing mini-research papers in order to get their instructori??s permission to write their research paper. Instead, think about taking a step back and explaining to your reader what it is that will have to happen in order to accomplish the research project. In other words, in order to achieve the course goals for the research proposal, consider the following questions and suggestions:
What do you propose to research?
Introduce and summarize the issue/question/problem you intend to study.
What is your research question(s)?
What is your (tentative) working claim, and what are the reasons you think you will use to support that
Why is your proposed research project important?
What is the cultural context and/or social significance of the problem?
What sort of academic research has been done before, and how is it important or intriguing?
What is the academic debate surrounding your chosen focus?
What are the disciplines (and/or professions, political parties, etc.) that are engaged in that debate?
What are the contentious issues? (If there are no contentious issues, then you should revise your topic.)
How do you propose to accomplish your research?
What kinds of sources will you need to use?
How are you approaching your sources? To agree? Disagree? Contradict? Synthesize? Question?
If appropriate, how do you envision integrating your secondary sources with your primary sources?
What will your research project add to the discussion?

Hello: I just upload the requirement for the proposal. Like the Annotated Bibliography you just finished. This one might use the source you find from the AB to write about how I gonna use those sources to finish my paper. Please follow the instruction carefully to finish the work. In case you donT remember the Annotated Bibliography which you wrote. I upload it also.
