This is a very particular type of document, “the proposal.” And yet not all are the same. For other classes and teachers, you may find yourself writing something that looks an awful lot like an essay with mandatory subheadings. For this project in this course, you will have four parts totaling probably no more than 250 words.
● Interest, in which you explain what has piqued your interest, a small part of writing studies you are curious about;
● Question, in which you draft a version of the question you would like to answer about writing, reading, and/or thinking;
● Hypothesis, in which you tell me your best guess for an answer to the question right now, what you think you will find to be true; and
● Research Sources, in which you list the readings, people, and things you will tap and/or create to learn about your question and try and answer it
