In a WORD, PDF, or HTML document, submit to the D2L assignment dropbox called “INQUIRY DRAFT” of your Inquiry Project. This part of the written project will likely take you the most time. This includes most of the components of the final project EXCEPT the professional interview. You will have the opportunity to get feedback on this draft and make any necessary revisions before you submit your final paper in a few weeks. For students who put a lot of effort into the draft, they often do not need to make too many revisions for their final paper.
***Remember that if you have any questions about your project, you are encouraged to talk to Wendy–ask questions in class, go to her office hours, make an appointment to meet with her, send her an email.
In this document include the following sections to receive full credit for this draft:
Using APA formatting (no abstract is needed), your paper needs to include the following sections:
#1) Inquiry Topic & Bronfenbrenner’s Model (5 points)
A very brief paragraph introducing your topic and where if falls in Bronfenbrenner’s Model.
#2) Inquiry (15 points total)
A description of the information you found so far on your topic——this is where you integrate the academic research you have found, including the information from your annotated bibliography, field trips, observations, photos, other non-academic sources (websites, etc.), and any interviews you have conducted. If you have not yet completed any interviews, include a description of your preparations for conducting at least one professional interview, and any additional interviews. This section should be about two-three pages in length.
#3) Cross Cultural Comparison (5 points)
A brief description of what this topic looks like in another culture. This should be about one page in length in text. See the additional information on cultural comparisons posted in the WRITING GUIDELINES.
#4) References (10 points)
Include ALL references from your inquiry. These should be the full citations that match the in-text citations in the body of your paper. Please follow the APA referencing guidelines posted. Here’s a resource for APA citing: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/. Also see the sample paper posted for an example of how to format your in-text citations, and your reference section.
Also include “personal communication” citations for all interviews. Examples of how to cite personal communications are posted in the WRITING GUIDELINES. Technically you wouldn’t cite interviews for APA, but for this assignment I DO want them cited.
#5) Proofreading Form (10 points) Attach a copy of the proofreading form that has been completed by a classmate in the course. You do not have to fix your paper based on the feedback for this draft, although you would probably get a better grade on the draft if you did!
#6) Overall grammar & writing structure (5 points). Be sure your paper reads clearly and fluidly.
DUE: Submit your INQUIRY DRAFT & completed PROOFREADING FORM to the D2L ASSIGNMENT DROPBOX by the posted deadline.
For all writing assignments for this course, you need to create your document in either WORD, PDF, or HTML—that means when you save your response the document title should be followed by either .doc, .docx, .pdf, or .html (if you do not use one of these formats, there is a chance that your response cannot be read and you won’t get a grade for it. Go to a campus computer lab for help if you don’t know how to follow these instructions. PAGES is not an approved format). You will then save it & upload it into the ASSIGNMENT DROPBOX in D2L under “INQUIRY DRAFT” by the deadline.
***NOTE: Once you’ve submitted your paper into the D2L assignment dropbox, you will get an email confirming your submission was successful. SAVE THIS EMAIL. If you ever have any issues, you will need to provide this email confirmation to prove that you did actually submit your paper successfully. If you don’t get the email, you can’t assume your submission was successful.
