For this assignment, you will be submitting a progress report and time management plan to keep yourself on track for the final project, which is due in the next unit.
First, please provide a progress report. At this point, you should have completed the following in preparation for synthesizing your ideas and discoveries:
Identify a research topic then review and summarize the information your text offers about that topic. Locate, evaluate, describe, and cite one credible online source.
Locate, evaluate, describe, and cite one popular source and one peer-reviewed journal article about your topic.
Locate, evaluate, describe, and cite one peer-reviewed journal article about your topic and create an outline for your final project.
Locate, evaluate, describe, and cite one credible video source and develop your personal response to the research, including creative recommendations for addressing relevant problems in a particular community.
Your paper should be 3-5 pages, double-spaced; this page count does not include a cover page or a reference page
You should include a minimum of four sources, which will be located throughout the semester, and will meet the following criteria:
Required: Your textbook
Required: 2 peer-reviewed journal articles
Choose from (you may include more than one of these): 1 popular source (do not exceed one popular written source), 1 general online source, or 1 video source (strive for credibility here)
Once you have considered this information and reviewed your work over the last several weeks, please develop a one-paragraph summary of where you are with the project, whether or not you need to still complete any of the steps in the grid above, and how you see these components coming together to generate a 3-5 page paper.
Second, you are being asked to develop a time management plan to keep yourself on track for the next unit, as the project is due at the end of it. Consider how much time you have left to synthesize the information and write the paper. How will you divide the work up to ensure that you have a high-quality product? Please develop a one-paragraph summary or layout of a visual grid that shows how you will accomplish the task of developing your 3-5 page paper.
Your paper should include two full paragraphs (5-8 sentences) OR one paragraph and one visual grid for time management and is due by Day 7 of this week (11:59 pm EST).
