2. You will pick a topic you are interested in investigating either from The Omnivore’s Dilemma and/or Good and Cheap or a topic of your own that helps answer our driving question (How should we eat?) and research that topic in relation to the book/s and/or our driving question and write a research essay that argues a point from the book/s and/or your research. If focusing on a topic from one of our texts, your essay should use researched sources to provide further insight into the topic. Remember to present your argument through a clear focused Thesis Statement, and use key terms to guide your topic sentences and body paragraphs.
Instructions
This assignment will consist of two parts:
1) a proposal and annotated bibliography
2) a research essay
You must turn in both assignments in a timely manner as you will need my feedback on the proposal and bibliography to safely continue your research and draft your essay and the essay will be due at the final.
1) Proposal and Annotated Bibliography
In an assignment of a proposal and working annotated bibliography, you should propose a research question and your initial research sources so that I can give you advice on your topic and sources.
You need to first pose a research question; good research approaches a topic with an open mind, not a predetermined outcome, so ask a question that you want to find answer to through your research. Make sure your question is not too broad (e.g., How has corn affected our diet/food system/health?), and you will have to be able to find enough credible sources to help you come up with an answer. If you cannot find enough sources you may need to broaden your topic or ask a different question.
In the introduction to the proposal, you should first introduce your research topic, based on a topic or idea from The Omnivore’s Dilemma and/or Good and Cheap, by discussing what the class text author/s say about it and what you think about it, and then stating your topic (your specific focus for your research) as a question—what do you want to find out about this topic?
The rest of the proposal should discuss how you will approach your question:
what are you looking at as far as what the class text author/s have said about it?;
what two of your researched sources say about the topic and how that is informing your question and research; how you will organize the essay; and what topics you will need to discuss to fully answer your question.
You should also make a working annotated bibliography, with a short paragraph, 3-5 sentences, for each source you will use for your essay that summarizes the source, evaluates its credibility, and reflects on how the source will fit into your argument. This should have at least 6 outside sources in addition to, if you are using, The Omnivore’s Dilemma and/or Good and Cheap. You should have a one to two page proposal with a research question and at least a two-page annotated bibliography.
Please refer to the Sample Proposal and Annotated Bibliography page below for a model for your assignment.
