Preliminary Submission #1: Topic Proposal To begin the process of writing our research paper, a suitable topic must be chosen. Based upon the research paper description already posted and being as specific as possible at this beginning stage, you will present your proposed topic in this “journal” space. Your proposal should do the following: Identify a specific topic — think about the groups, the people you would like to examine Explain how you believe this group fits into the theme of the paper — what is your reasoning for choosing this group for this assignment List of few of the ways you will examine and look at this paper using your example — I know this is the very earliest of stages and you do not have all of the information yet, so use this a means to consider different ideas you may or may not use This is not a formal essay. I want you to use the text box to type out your proposal in one paragraph. Keep in mind that this is a proposal so you may change the arguments you make or even the topic. Use this as a chance to get comfortable with the assignment and begin the process of building your paper.
