Upcoming Deadlines!

Thursday, August 14
Annotated bibliography:Should include at least ten sources. Check class notes about format.

Peer Assessments: Assessments of two of your classmates' drafts of chapter 3. The grading rubric may guide you.

Thursday, August 21
Second Draft of Chapter 3: This should be very close to a final draft. It should lay out completely how you are going to answer your research question. It should be good enough so that someone not familiar with your work should be able to read chapter 3 then hypothetically be able to gather the same data, analyze it the same way, and obtain exactly the same results that you will discuss in chapter 4.
