Please take a look at the file attached. There are three questions that needs to be answered. I answered the first one, can you please help go over the first one too see if it needs to be revised and also check for grammar. Question #2 and #3 still need to be answered2.1 Take a few moments to assess the research and writing processes you have
typically followed when you have been given a research assignment by an
instructor. Do you tend to procrastinate—to work on the assignment right before
it’s due? Or do you start working as soon as you are given the assignment? How
do you typically choose a topic for a research assignment? Which of the three
research routines (fast surfer, broad scanner, deep diver) best describe you?
Where do you initially look for information? What kinds of sources do you tend to
for? How do you decide which sources to use in your paper? How do you
organize your ideas? How do you approach writing a first draft? When and how
do you typically revise your work once you have a draft? Do you leave time to
edit and polish your writing before you submit your paper? Finally, how well have
these researches and writing habits served you in the past? Where do you think
you might improve your research and writing processes?
Whenever I am given an assignment, I tend to start working on it right away. I do not like
to rush on an assignment and that is what happens when one procrastinates. Choosing a topic for
a research assignment is not hard for me. I am a very curious person and I tend to ask a lot of
questions whenever I do not understand anything. It can be in a class, work, even at home. So
when choosing a topic for a research assignment, I already have options and based on the kind of
class it is, I select one that deems fit. I am definitely a deep diver. Once I figure out the topic, I
start my search from google. If I do not see what I want, I head to my school library system. The
sources I look for varies. My instructor determines my source. For example, a professor can tell
me he/she does not mind newspaper sources like the NYTimes whereas one professor will let it
know that all sources must be from an academic scholar article. I determine the source to use in
my paper based on the professor instructions and then the source credibility. For example, I
would not use Wikipedia simply because anyone can change the context.
As idea pops in my head, I jot them down on a word document. I let my mind wonder off
and type them down as they are coming. Knowing that my grammar needs some help, I use the
app “Grammarly”. Once I approach my first draft by first forming my thesis and typing up my
introduction paragraph and then I work my way up to the conclusion paragraph. I paste my paper
onto grammar to make sure I have no passive voice, and the correct audience, whether
knowledgeable or general audience can read what I wrote without issues. I definitely leave time
to polish and edit my paper before submitting. I want to make sure I have done my absolute best.
I have a MacBook so I audio play the paper from word document, so whenever I hear something
that does not sound right, I try my best to fix the sentence. These researches and writing habits
has pretty much been ok for me. There is definitely room for developments hence why I am
happy I am in this course. I do not see this course as a requirement but rather another helping
tool in perfecting my writing.
2.2.2 Choose one of the potential sources you have gathered thus far and assess
whether it is a “good” source in the context of your research project. What is the
purpose of the source? To inform? To persuade? Does it contain uncontested,
authoritative facts that you might cite to provide background information on your
subject? Does it offer exhibits—information that can be analyzed, interpreted, or
explained? If so, what claims does it set forth? How might you work with these
claims in your discussion? Could you provide additional support for them?
Counter them? Complicate or extend them? Could the source provide you with a
methodology—a theory, approach, or methodology for looking at or answering
your research question? Might you use the source by demonstrating what
it doesn’t say? Be as specific as you can in exploring how you might use material
from the source in your researched essay.
One of my sources is “Understanding and Preventing Money Laundering”. The article’s purpose
is to inform readers what money laundering is and how to prevent it. The article provides
authoritative facts and it offers exhibits regarding money laundering.
3.8.3 In your own words, explain the differences among paraphrasing,
summarizing and quoting. Then choose a substantial paragraph from one of the
sources you plan to use in your research paper and write a paraphrase of it. Next,
write a summary of the same paragraph. Finally, write a paragraph of your own in
which you include a quotation or two from the paragraph.
