Project 3: Language Research for Term Papers as applied to Language 2101
The Language 2101 course description requires the student to compose a scholarly research paper having gone through a systematic process using comprehensive research techniques. The subsequent process and product constitute a substantial component for evaluation purposes.
The objectives of the course which specifically relate to the use of the internet include:
Once provided with technical instruction, each student enrolled in Language 2101 will be granted access to the Internet in order to research their chosen topic via the world wide web. Information deemed appropriate will be downloaded and documented in the bibliography of the research paper. The American Psychological Association, whose style format is utilized at Brother Rice and most post secondary institutions, recognized the Internet as an accepted information source.
In Summary, students will demonstrate their ability to gather, interpret, organize and report information gathered from the information highway throughout the process of compiling their research paper. Students will then be expected to critically evaluate the sources for their reliability, validity, and appropriateness.
