Research and Analysis

The purpose of this unit is to help you begin gathering and analyzing sources for your ten-page Researched Argument. We will begin in the SAU archives where you can find a particular artifact to start your research. You will then find ways to situate this artifact in a broader conversation by interviewing a relevant expert and reading a peer-reviewed article. Your Summa Assignment, which functions as the final paper for this unit, will help you ask a focused question about this artifact and consider possible answers. In other words, your Summa Assignment will serve as a springboard for you to begin working on your Researched Argument. Below are the details for the four assignments due in this unit.

  1. Artifact Analysis
  2. Interview
  3. Academic Journal Article Assignment
  4. Summa
