Research Essay Assignment
1500 words (not counting References list); worth 15% of final grade.
This assignment is centred on two main tasks: performing thorough scholarly research and
formulating a strong thesis statement.
Your Research Essay will make a careful and sustained argument about a topic of your choice;
that argument will be supported by your scholarly research. The topic for this essay needs to be
narrowly focused. The narrower the better. Want to explore the impact of social media on body
image trends? Too big! Too general! Want to explore the effects that American Apparel’s
Facebook campaigns have had on Canadian teens? That’s more like it. I will tell everyone to
narrow their topics. It’s almost impossible to think of a topic that’s too narrow.
That said, keep in mind that you have to support your claims with scholarly research, so
scholars need to have published material on your topic. It’s unlikely that you will be able to find
scholarly material on why the Canucks are so terrible, but you probably will be able to find
scholarly material on the role of violence in sports.
Although the topic of your Research Essay is open, you should talk to me about what you are
planning to study as soon as possible. The strongest papers always come from people who have
discussed their topics with me early and often—chat before or after class, send an email, or
stop by during office hours. Also see the sample assignments in Blackboard.
Your Research Essay will be closely linked to your Proposal (in which you describe your topic
and argument) and your Annotated Bibliography (in which you briefly summarize three
scholarly sources and explain how they fit into your Research Essay).
There is no minimum or maximum number of sources required for this assignment—you should
use as many scholarly sources as you need to effectively support your thesis. As a rough
estimate, I’d suggest that most of your essays will probably reference 4 – 6 scholarly sources,
but some will require more and some fewer.
