Writing the Research Proposal You will be required to write a short proposal for your argumentative research paper. This proposal will be an expansion of your thesis statement to tell a bit more about your paper topic and present a few of the sources from which you plan to gather your researched material. This short proposal must include the following information: a. Your purpose for writing this paper. What will you examine and why is that important? b. Your role as the writer of this paper. What techniques will you use to both inform your reader and present your argument in a persuasive manner? c. Your working thesis statement or hypothesis. What do you expect to find in your research? Here is an example of a short research proposal: Some university instructors complain that incoming freshmen are inadequately prepared for the demands of college-level research tasks. This is probably due to a failure of communication between high school and college instructors and administrators.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
