Well, I feel accomplished. I finally calmed the thoughts in my mind long enough to filter through a topic for 5369 Theories of Technology.
Two of my research interests are online environments and writing instruction, particularly instruction for basic/remedial writing, and I had an idea of what I wanted to write about, but I was having an extremely hard time trying to state it in a research question.
Finally, here’s the question: Is the use of online environments an effective way to teach remedial writing?
Dr. Carter thought the question was a good one, but she suggested I look at that term, online environments, and narrow it down.
So that’s my next agenda. Figure out what online environment I want to examine and then hop into research-a-thon.
One paper topic down. Three more paper topics (for three other classes) to go.
