The transition in accommodation level for deaf students from high school to college
-What is most important in this essay is that you go well beyond description and focus primarily on critical analysis. A research essay must have a point of view. Without a thesis or "controlling argument," your essay will be merely descriptive, or will summarize the various articles that you have read without demonstrating your understanding or independent analysis.
10-12 resources in total. Please note that utilizing a research source involves much more than merely mentioning it. Remember that the research process requires careful scrutiny and attention – evaluate the reliability of all sources cited, and avoid the pitfalls of improper citation and plagiarism.
• Ability to apply course theories and concepts to the critical analysis of an issue in Deaf studies.
• Depth of analysis and reflection.
• Significant and appropriate use of external sources.
• Clarity of presentation, organization, and structure.
