Original Essay: any essay from our class’s reading list.
This research paper will focus on a particular topic or aspect of an original essay. The goal of this project is to learn a bit more about this topic so that you can make a comparison and/or contrast between the research that you do and the original essay’s perspective.
Really, you want to put your research into conversation with the views of the original essay. You want to ask questions like ‘How does the original essay’s depiction of this experience, reality, phenomenon differ from OR compare to my research on the same subject?’ Then you want to write about the comparisons or the differences.
The list of topics has a total of five suggestions (visit C4 for examples).
However, you can pick any reading you want, providing there is something in that original essay that allows you to research the topic.
