Begin writing the process of an Action Research cycle: Look, Think, Act
The Look cycle (gathering information or building the picture) includes steps that will provide the needed background and understanding of a higher education problem and determine the questions to be pursued through this research. This section makes sense of the problem through observation, interview, documentation and literature.
The Think process (interrupting and analysis) will include various actives that define the problem further and suggest potential stakeholder groups who will help facilitate this research. The process of analyzing and interpretation of the findings will be an important part of this framework and includes the review, categorizing, organizing and reporting,
The Act process (implantation or resolving the problem) will require using the first two parts of the cycle for organizing the priorities for action. These priorities will include:
Stated goals and objectives
The tasks that must take place
People who are responsible
Where it will take place
The timeline where it will take place
Any other necessary resources
Write an essay that addressed the above points. Your essay should be 2200-2500 words and should include at least three (3) citations. The sections should be clearly marked with headings so that your instructor knows which points you are addressing. Follow the guidelines for APA writing style. The title page and references page do not count towards the minimum word amount for this assignment.
Conducting research projects while ensuring the protection of human subjects is necessary. What are some methods to protect personal rights of someone in one of the groups that is labeled as vulnerable? Justify your rationale.
Your final paper will be an in-depth analysis wherein you will compare and contrast two of the films from the course. The focus will be the ways in which these films deal with a common issue regarding science and/or technology. This issue will be of your own choosing. You can approach this in two ways:
Choose a topic or idea we have already covered and expand on it in greater detail and/or take it in a new direction
Come up with an original issue that has not been covered widely in the course
Just as with the discussion forums, the purpose of the paper is for you to advance an argument using the films and your research as evidence. The difference is that here you will go into much greater depth. As with the discussion forums, do not simply restate or summarize the plot of the films.
Evidence to support your point will also come from outside sources, of which you must utilize at least four. A minimum of two of these must be scholarly sources. A scholarly source is something that comes from an academic publication or journal, or a book from an academic press. You are also welcome to use non-scholarly sources from legitimate popular press/news sources (i.e. Wired, The New York Times, etc.). Wikipedia, HowStuffWorks, an individual’s movie blog, etc., are not valid sources, and you will lose points if these are included.
As always, proper formatting, source citation, spelling, and grammar are part of the grading criteria, so make sure you proofread before you submit.
Length: 1500-1750 words (not including footnotes, headers, footers, works cited, etc.)
Formatting: 12pt Times New Roman, double-spaced, 1-inch margins on all sides, PDF file
Sources: At least 4 sources, including at least 2 scholarly sources
Citation Style: MLA or Chicago
