Part I: The Prospectus (due Tuesday 10/2 by 2pm)
In 2-3 pages, outline what you want to research and how you want to go about researching it.
- What is the general topic?
- What is your specific research question? Why is this question important? Have others already asked this question? If so, what is wrong with their answers?
- What kinds of evidence do you need to answer this question? Where can you find this evidence?
- What will give you confidence in this evidence (whatever it turns out to be)?
- What challenges will you need to overcome to carry out this research project?
