The proposal is the first step of the research project process. This project asks you to investigate in three successive stages an injustice at the international or national (i.e. not local) level. Because this is a research project, each stage will require you to incorporate reliable outside sources into your writing. We will spend time in class discussing how to navigate specific library databases so that you are aware of the resources that are available for you to use in order to fulfill this requirement.
A successful examination of these two questions will provide thorough answers for each and will draw upon reliable secondary sources to address them. You will need to use at least two sources for this assignment.
The essay (think of this proposal as a short essay) should be typed and double-spaced; it should also be at least one full page (and no more than two) in length and use correct APA citation. You do not need to provide a title page for this essay (save the trees), nor do you need to have a running head or an abstract. The essay should contain your name, the course name, my name, and the date submitted in the upper left-hand corner of the first page; you can include a title if you wish. The essay should, however, use correct APA citation when incorporating information from secondary sources into the essay, and it needs to provide a correctly formatted reference page that lists the sources you have cited within the paper.
