4.2 Assignment



  • Generate and narrow a topic
  • Decide on a working issue question for your essay
  • List information questions you plan to pursue
  • Determine a search strategy and keywords to use in library databases
  • Retrieve relevant, reliable articles from library databases
  • Compile a tentative list of sources on your topic.


Before you start, watch "Explore & Narrow Your Topic with Opposing Viewpoints" and "ENGL 102/103: Developing a Search Strategy" (both by MC Libraries). These videos will help you get basic information on your topic and determine whether the topic you want to explore is feasible for the assignments in the course. 

The parts of the topic proposal that overlap with the 4.1 Discussion should reflect any revisions you've made to the issue and information questions since posting them, or, if you have decided to change topics and/or issue questions, you can submit completely new ones in this assignment. 

Remember that your topic should relate to one of the three assigned themes: Violence, Privacy and technology, Free speech on college campuses, or a different one proposed to and discussed with your professor.

Example of a topic: "violent video games," "online data collection by companies," "offensive guest speakers on college campuses."

Your current opinion on the issue question:

You don’t need to have read them, and you’re not required to use them, but this list will ensure that you can find source material on your topic.

Three (3) complete and correctly formatted MLA citations for three SCHOLARLY sources accessed through library databases. Again, you don’t need to have read them, and you’re not required to use these particular sources, but this list will ensure that there is source material available on your topic.
