CTE Within sports

Objective: This research paper will reflect the work built upon through the semester, as you will expand
research processes and refine analysis of texts. You will pick a research topic arising out of one of two
concepts: Contemporary Social Issues (in the past approximate five years) or Identities on the Periphery.
You will want to determine the approach to the topic to guide your research and writing. As instead of
discussing a narrative experience and the topic of a text, you will now analyze what position a text
provides to your research topic and a conversation on that topic amongst your research sources. You will
be supporting a controlling idea or arguing a thesis (which could encompass one or a few combined
arguments pertaining to your topic). In addition, you may also be including some of the following
approaches in combination with your thesis, extending to an approximate 7-page length:
-Argumentative Approach
-Informative Approach
-Cause/Effect Approach (Overall issue /s that your topic is facing across the board)
-Problem/Solution
Canter 2
*For this project, you want to primarily focus on an objective analysis of the research; therefore, any
first person writing should be at a minimum. Your writing style needs to become more formal and
academic than prior projects which allowed a larger narrative component. Will your approach be only
argumentative, or will it include some other elements such as problem and solution, cause and effect, or
strictly informative? The minimum length requirement is seven full pages before Works Cited (do not go
over 9), and the paper is worth 30 % of your overall grade. There is a six source minimum. The paper
should reflect concepts of issues/identity we have overviewed throughout the semester, a clear
understanding of MLA, a polished, formal writing style, and a controlling idea/thesis statement which
overviews as a whole, how your chosen paper topic is represented by your sources. You have a primary
source/secondary source guide for an outline. Note that the outline is just a minimum paragraph length
suggestion, and you are able to devote more paragraphs to your project to reach the minimum length.
