Capstone CheckPoint Now that you have finished your research paper, what advice would you provide to students starting this course? I would tell students entering this class to get ahead on your research paper. Start your argument early and figure out what you want to write your paper about before your topic is due. I would also advise them not to do your paper on a topic you know nothing about. I chose to do my paper on a subject that I had no prior knowledge of beforehand. It made my research a lot more difficult. Either write about something you already know a little bit about or get a head start on your research paper. What would you do differently if you were just starting the course? On what would you focus more? On what would you focus less? Explain your answers. If I could start over in this course, I would have chosen a topic for my research paper that I already knew more about. It was a huge challenge trying to find credible sources of information

If I could start again, I would focus more on the research paper itself than attempting to sift through resources. I spent more time on my sources than on my paper. Having said that, I can safely say I would have focused a lot less on the “mainstream” sites for sources on this subject. I am, however, very proud to say that I now know substantively more about affirmative action than I did before. I also found that, after doing my research, my opinion of Affirmative Action actually changed. I have learned a lot in these past nine weeks and look forward to continuing my education with the university....
