Assignment: Research Project: Discovery Draft

Throughout the duration of this course, you will work on one extended research project through the entire course. This is the first of four assignments in this project:

  • Discovery Draft
  • 1000-word Draft
  • Peer Review of 2000-word Draft
  • Final Draft

Discovery Draft

A discovery draft is a great opportunity to figure out what you know, and what you still need to find out, in order to build a real research essay. This is a very informal assignment, and what you submit will not be judged in terms of length, grammar, presentation, or even content. I simply want to see that you have spent one solid hour working on your research project. This quiz will record your time.

Everyone’s submissions will look very different, and that’s fine. Remember, this is primarily to serve your own needs, so decide for yourself what your top priority is right now.
