English and Literature

Description: For this project, you’ll interview one or two people who attended college at least 15 years ago about their memories, their college experiences, the impact or relevance of college to their life since. You’ll prepare thoughtful interview questions, take careful interview notes, and use those notes to compose a profile essay, in which you’ll use your interviewee’s thoughts and words to characterize and discuss what college was like for this person and how their college experiences shaped their life. Additionally, you’ll reflect upon significant differences between college then and college now. Readers of your essay will learn about your interviewee, about what college was like for this person, about the role college played in his or her life, about how higher education has changed over time, and about why all these things are important or relevant.
Choose an interview subject who is willing and able to talk to you with some detail about his or her college experiences. And you’ll want to choose a person to whom you have ready access to such as family members, friends of family, and neighbors. Your own particular college experiences are not the primary subject of this essay. Instead, consider yourself a journalist or historian. Your essay will likely involve several modes of writing, including narration, definition, description, analysis, interpretation, and compare/contrast. The essay must not be a mere transcript of your interview(s).

Research: Sources for your essay must include at least one primary source (your interviewee). Optionally, you might interview an additional person who can enrich your data about college a decade (or more) ago. You may use secondary sources (published sources such as articles, websites, or books), but none is required. All source information included in the essay (direct quotations, paraphrases, and summaries) must be documented appropriately, using MLA guidelines, and a Works Cited page is required. You may wish to audio-record your interviews, but it’s not required. You are required to use proper informed consent procedures with your interviewee and to take detailed notes of the interview. Interviews must be conducted live; email or print questionnaires are forbidden.
Form: Essay with a minimum of 1000 words (maximum of 1750 words), typed and double-spaced, with 1-inch margins and normal font. The Works Cited page is not included in the 1000-word minimum length requirement. With the journalistic persona required of you for this project, you might plan your profile essay as a magazine article directed toward readers of a particularly appropriate magazine of your choice.

Evaluation Criteria: Your essay will be evaluated according to the following criteria and questions.
Organization: How effectively have you composed (put together and connected) the information and details from your interview? To what extent are the individual parts connected to the whole essay? Do not narrate your interview; do not follow your interview’s convenient chronology.
Fullness and Power: To what extent is there depth and amount of detail, research, and thoughtful processing of your information and topic? How vivid is your profile and its dominant impression? To what extent does your writing help readers to think about the role of college in your interviewee’s life? How effectively does your essay help readers think about college more generally?
Source Use: How well do you integrate and attribute your source material in your essay? To what extent has your interviewee (and any other sources) specifically informed us about the college experience?
Presentation: To what degree are the essay’s textual features appropriate and/or correct? Such features include craft, tone, layout, and adherence to conventions of grammar and usage.

Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

These guidelines can help you identify a research study and distinguish an article that presents the findings of a research study from other types of articles.
·                     A research study must:
§  Ask a research question
§  Identify a research population or group
§  Describe a research method
§  Test or measure something
§  Summarize the results
Research studies are almost always published in peer-reviewed (scholarly) journals. The articles often contain headings similar to these: Literature Review, Method, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion. Articles that review other studies without presenting new research results are not research studies. Examples of article types that are NOT research studies include:
·         literature reviews, editorials, case studies, comments or letters relating to previously-published research studies
WHAT TO LOOK FOR!
·         What is Empirical Research?
o    Empirical means experience or data derived from observation or experiment.
o    Empirical research articles are published in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals.
o    Most empirical research articles include the following five components:
§  Introduction and Literature Review
§  Method
§  Results
§  Discussion or Conclusion
§  References
·         Abstract
o    Most scholarly (peer-reviewed, refereed) journal articles are preceded by an ABSTRACT, which gives you a short synopsis of the article’s content.
·         Look for 5
o    Introduction and Literature Review
o    Method
o    Results
o    Conclusion
o    References


·         Introduction and Literature Review
o    This section will provide the need and rationale of this particular research project, state their research question, research statement and/or hypothesis, and will review the literature that supports (or contradicts) their research question, research statement and/or hypothesis.
o    Supporting ideas with other scholarly research Reasons for undertaking research
·         Method
o    This section describes the methodology or research design used to gather the data for the study.
o    Typically a methodology includes:
§  A description of the participants or subjects.
§  A description of the research method, measure, overall research design and/or an approach to data analysis.
·         Results
o    This section describes (through narrative and charts, graphs, tables or other graphical elements) the final findings reached through analysis of the data.
o    This is sometimes called Results or Findings. The results can be qualitative or quantitative.
Examples of Results In a narrative, in a table or in a graph
·         Discussion or Conclusion
o    This section provides a discussion, summary, or conclusion, bringing together the research question, research statement and/or hypothesis and the findings. It is sometimes called Implications.
·         References
o    This section provides a list of cited references. This list references all of the articles cited within the article. Most of these articles would have been referred to (cited) in the Literature Review and Results sections.
CHECKLIST-the below checklist must be completed with two articles submitted as well as the identified area in the article must be highlighted and the original hardcopies must be turned in for full credit for the assignment.
o   Abstract
o   Introduction/Literature Review
o   Methods
o   Results
o   Discussion or Conclusion
o   References

This research assignment consists of two grading components: theory grade (research paper & checklist) and a clinical grade (oral presentation & IP simulation).
