Topic; The Ban on Abortions
Note: This assignment is part of your Project 2 grade. Please take extra care with this assignment. This blog is worth 20% of your Project 2 grade.
In Unit 1, you did some preliminary research on your topic and now, in Unit 2, you’ve narrowed it down to a research question. As we’ve discussed, however, research questions need to be divided into smaller, manageable questions. For this assignment, you will find two sources that each work to answer questions you have–and that help you move towards an answer for your research question.
Before you begin, think of some of the things you need to know (that you do not already know) before you can answer you research question. Do some research on the library webpage (Links to an external site.) or on Google or Google Scholar until you find sources that answer your questions a) in a way you can understand and b) that help you understand the large conversation better.
Remember: you might see your blog posts as polished written texts with your instructor as the audience.You want to persuade your instructor that you are exploring effectively by demonstrating intellectual curiosity, rhetorical reading and an open mind. You will want to show that you are learning something new about your topic with each new blog post, and will ultimately want to show how the process has impacted your understanding of the issue and the focus of your research project. You’ll also want to revise your post so that it is well written and easy to follow.
Write your research question at the top of the post. Then, post a link to each source (I’m looking for 2 sources). Then, below each link, include the following information with each one of your sources:
Note: Within your answers above, include at least one quote from the source with an in-text citation in MLA format. (Refer to this resource if you need help remembering how to do this.
Actions) When thinking about what to quote, select a sentence or two that seems significant to this source and connects to what you are saying in this summary.
Reflect on your next steps. After you’ve answered the questions above for each of those sources, post a summary of what you feel you understand about your topic, what you are confused about, what questions you still have. You might also discuss:
After you have posted, respond to two classmates. I recommend that you respond to the information that they are most interested in researching next and/or what aspect of the problem they are most interested in focusing on. Try to provide helpful feedback that helps them narrow their focus–and generate questions for research for their next blog. Pay particular attention to their research question. If it’s not clear how these sources answer that question, help your classmate get back on track. Your response should be at least 200 words long.
Summaries follow a very particular structure.
Here’s an example summary:
In his paper “Global Implications of Patent Law Variation,” Koji Suzuki states that lack of consistency in the world’s patent laws is a serious problem. He explains that most of the world gives the patent rights to the first to file for a patent. However, the United States maintains a first-to-invent policy, which means if an inventor can prove that they invented something before the person who filed for a patent, they can have the patent rights. Suzuki further explains that because of this discrepancy, the person who owns the patent rights to a specific product can change based on the country. He argues that multiple owning the same patent can result in economic problems, as well as international tension. He then provides examples of the ways that the U.S. violates the Paris Convention on Industrial Properties by refusing to recognize patents in other countries and the ways that that has created international tensions.
