- Today, we'll be drafting your proposals!
- Think about what you wrote for the homework from our last class day.
- Freewrite about why a panel might be beneficial for your research. How does working within a theme change the dynamics of your individual research?
- What kinds of proposals are there?
- What are the key ingredients in an academic proposal?
- What the heck is Toulmin? (Why do we need to know?)
- Finally, Design and Visuals?!?!
- Look at the examples of proposal theses on p.291 of EAA.
- Based on your freewriting, brainstorm your potential panel claims on a sheet of paper. You've got 10 minutes.
- Get together in your topic groups!
- Work with your panel to communicate and establish your individual argumentative goals, based on your homework over the break.
- Discuss how your goals demonstrate something about the theme you're organized around.
- Take notes to use when you determine whether or not to submit to the FYRC!!
- Next, return to your computers for some drafting.
- Individually, address each of the key elements listed on page 292 of EAA.
- We'll use these to Peer Review your Proposal work on Wednesday.
- Final Proposals due Friday before midnight on Blackboard!
- Work on finalizing your Proposal draft with your panel cohort.
- Define your thesis using the Toulmin method (Claim, Reason, Warrant). We'll use these elements Wednesday to focus your Proposals.
- Remember that this Proposal should help you write your FYRC application, if you choose to!
