Writing Through Research is intended for students in all majors and fulfills one of the W requirements at the University of Connecticut. The first part of the course is devoted to working together as a class on a research project on the subject of technology in order to practice the elements of research, including how to develop a research question, find sources to guide this exploration, engage sources, develop a first draft, and revise this draft. The rest of the course is devoted to applying this methodology. Students will develop and explore an individual research question relevant to them, which will culminate in a large-scale research paper.
Topics of previous research essays include:
The health risks associated with cell phone usage
The ethics of sex selection
The role of social programs in urban settings
The use of placebos in the medical field
The effect of fast-food on Americans
