Common Assignment 1 

Each student will select a topic related to course themes, obtain the Inquiry I instructor’s approval, and study the topic throughout the semester. The first stage of the assignment is:

      State why the issue is interesting to you, explain your current understanding of the issue, articulate several ways of knowing  about the issue, and list 6 sources, three of which must be books or articles from our libraries (minimize your use of  magazine articles) and one of which can be personal experience. You will not be graded on the quality of your  sources at this time.  This assignment must be 500-750 words in length plus the bibliography.  You need to turn in 1 electronic copy (placed in the correct folder on the R:drive) and 1 hard copy.
