Assignment: 300 more words!
- If you haven’t already, build that bibliography! I’ll expect to see at least 10 scholarly sources for the full draft.
- Start drafting your Intro/Background and Problem/Significance. If you feel stumped, just list out bullet points.
- Be sure to address diversity by CLEARLY defining the marginalized populations, identities, and demographics you’re researching. Go back to the diversity style guides we’ve studied–and let them guide you!
- Be sure to address technology by describing the technologies you’re researching as specifically as you can.
- For example, “TikTok” is more specific than “Social Media,” which is more specific than the “Internet.”
- Another example: “Deep Learning Applications for Autonomous Vehicles” is more specific than “Deep Learning,” which is more specific than “AI.”
- You should have 600 original words (total) in your doc by Thursday.
