'''Research Steps'''
*Step 1 -- Preliminary Research
**''Your Goal is to gain a basic understanding of your topic!'''
**Look at a variety of sources. Look at multiple sources.
***Wikipedia
***Credo Reference
***History Websites
***YouTube videos and documentaries
***Be able to answer the basic reporter's questions about your topic: who, what, where, when, why, and how.
***Write stuff down. Ask questions. Use the questions to guide your research.
***Keep Narrowing down and refining your topic to find a particular line of thinking or angle you want to pursue! (This is your argument)

*Step 2 -- Focused Research

**'''Your Goal is to develop your argument by continuing with more in-depth research'''
**Look at a variety of sources. Look at multiple sources. But this time around they need to be higher quality academic sources from scholarly journals, historic websites, and books.
**Use research questions to guide your research.
**Develop your ideas around key ideas that can be supported with evidence from your primary and secondary sources.
**Write stuff down! Play with the ideas.
**Begin a transitioning from information gathering (research) to composing. This means identifying your argument and its main points and evidence. This means start thinking about how you are going to present this information to an audience!

!!Purpose is slightly different for the Proposal: you want to convince the conference judges to accept your proposal because you are offering a sound academic argument based on evidence and logical thinking.

'''Proposal should make 5 basic moves!'''

#Follow with 2 to 3 sentences of background information. This is where you cite academic sources from your research, using [=MLA=].
#Then add a sentence or so about the "so what" -- '''So what''' statements are about significance. Why this research or subject is important!
#Concluding statement comments on the findings of the study.
#Make certain to include a Works Cited list at the end for sources cited in the proposal, using [=MLA=].
