Poem approved : A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner
Research Approach Approved by Prof is Biographical Research : an argument about the reading of a story, play, or poem that would grow from research about the author (PLS USE THIS APPROACH).
The research project, worth 25% of your overall grade, requires you to synthesize the skills of critical reading, interpretation, analysis, and investigation that you have developed during the semester. The evaluation of the research project reflects a combination of points earned during the research assignment exercises and the evaluation of the paper itself.
Students may select any genre for their research project (fiction, drama or poetry), although a study of poetry is encouraged since the critical paper on poetry is fresh in your minds. Your task is to generate an original argument about a poem or poet (story or author; play or playwright); to submit appropriate research assignments during the process of investigation; to illustrate your argument in your development of the paper; and to integrate research in a logical and coherent manner.
The final draft of the research project should be 7--10 pages in length (1750-2500 words, 250 words a page), excluding works cited. The paper (project) should use at least five sources: 3 of these must be from other than web sources, and all should be current (unless you are using an historical approach). The sources must be credible, scholarly, and relevant.
