Unit 8 Assignment
Revision is one of the most important aspects of writing a research paper – oftentimes, we need the initial drafts to simply get ideas out and get words on paper; we use revision to then clarify, re-arrange, organize, and fine-tune what we mean to say. You have produced two distinct sections of a research paper so far, an introduction that acts as a research problem statement as well as a literature review. Now is the time to pull those two together, use the feedback received to revise and improve the work, and polish up any “little picture” issues that need to be fixed (grammar, punctuation, formatting errors, etc.).
Using the feedback you have received over the course of the semester from your instructor, as well as the tips discussed in this unit’s assigned reading, revise, edit, and proofread your research proposal. Be sure to include each section that has been covered this semester (Introduction/Research Problem Statement and Literature Review), as well as a cover page (if writing in APA format) or proper header (if in MLA format). Include your References or Works Cited page at the end. Use Purdue OWL as necessary to ensure your paper is fully APA/MLA formatted.
