Writing in Your Field Project: Proposal Instructions
This is the first step of a multi-part assignment that will culminate in a final product in Next Week. The final product is called the Writing in Your Field Project, because it will require you to produce a piece of research-based writing in a genre that is commonly used in the workplace in a field you are either currently working in or planning to enter. This product can be in any genre that involves research and could logically fit within the limits of 8–11 pages of writing: empirical article, lesson plan, sermon, case study, proposal, SWOT analysis, literature review, report, journalistic article, grant application, observational narrative, presentation script, or any other genre approved by the instructor.
In this proposal (due 10 Hours), you will write 2 pages stating the genre and topic of your proposed project, explaining why you chose them (genre and topic), describing the types of sources you plan to use (these can be non-traditional—think outside of academics), and detailing the research method(s) you plan to follow. You need to describe how you intend to go about organizing your project, finding sources, and presenting the results of your research. In the proposal, you must cite 2–3 sources both in-text and in a reference page/works cited/bibliography. These can either be sources you plan to use in the final project or sources that helped you arrive at your topic and/or genre. For all assignments in this course, you will cite sources using the most commonly used documentation style in your field; use the same style for all assignments.
As you write your proposal, keep your audience in mind. Both your instructor and your classmates will be reading and giving feedback on this proposal, and it is unlikely that all of them will be familiar with your field. Try to use as little jargon as possible, and remember that you may need to explain concepts that seem obvious to you.
Before you submit your proposal, use the rubric as a checklist to make sure you have addressed all necessary parts of the assignment.
