Your essay will anticipate the work that you still have to do . Have you changed your topic and find yourself scrounging for new information? Do you have a whole list of sources from assignment number three that you have found but still need to read? Most importantly, how do you plan to be prepared to write your research paper at the end of the semester? This essay should include very clear steps as well as a strong description of everything that goes in to completing your goal.
I want you to conclude with a rough version of what your opinion is about your topic . I want you to begin to think about what you have to contribute to what you have been researching. Be sure to provide a strong opinion on your
topic that does not just restate the research that you have been conducting. I want to know what you think about your chosen topic.
