Sample Research Proposals
Review the following sample research proposals. As you review each, consider how each element in the proposal is described and explained by the researcher, consider what is included, in what order it is shared, and how elements are combined. Also consider what is omitted, and/or what new elements are included that have not previously been studied in class. Lastly, consider how the researcher composed the proposal with an audience in mind, and what elements of the proposal work to persuade that audience.
As you review the proposals, select ones that are in your field of study AND ones that are of interest to you. Keep track of and reflect on what you have using Reflection: Reviewing Sample Proposals. This will help you to complete your Reflection Journal entry, where you will begin to make some decisions about what you found effective, what you liked, or what you have decided NOT to do in your own proposal.
