Exercise 2.2 – Secondary research

Your mission for this week is to collect all of the secondary sources you’ll need to answer questions/provide support for the research questions/tasks outlined in your research proposal, see what you’ve come up with as a group, and then summarize what you’ve found.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Individual: Complete research on the topics assigned to you and add your sources to your team’s shared bibliography.  For each source:
  2. Include a Citation: Paste a complete and properly formatted citation in the style your team is using. (You can use a citation generator like Zotero bib to generate citations if you wish.)
  3. Include a Summary: Write a brief (1-2 sentence) summary of the main idea of the article OR paraphrase the specific content/sentences you intend to draw on.
  4. Write a 1-page summary of your research findings and submit to your Research Director.
