For this homework assignment you need to do the following:

1. Write 4-5 keywords that you might find useful in research on the topic chosen by your team.
2. Plan a strategy for narrowing down your topic. You can write a short paragraph or 3-4 questions that might help you to do so.
3. Write a preliminary thesis statement to be discussed with your team in class.

You should post it as a comment to this blog entry. You will not see your post but I will get back to you via e-mail with my comments.

Please note: if you do not wish to have your comment to be posted on the web you can choose to e-mail it to me instead.

Use the handout given to you in class for useful tips on narrowing down the topic and writing a strong thesis statement. Also read Taking Charge (Chapter 1 of Research Strategies) - it has a good model for research and explains well the role of the thesis statement.

This assignment is worth 20 points if completed on time.
