Take one issue and think about how you could address it with an incentive. What could Broward College do to “incentivize” students to continue their education, to overcome this issue? Make sure that your research gives you information and ideas about the same kind of students who attend Broward College, a two-year, open-access, non-residential college. The kinds of challenges faced by our students are different from those faced by students attending a four-year university, one that has more selective admissions, and/or one where many students live on campus.
Here are some reasons I know why students might stop attending college.They don’t see the point. Many introductory/required courses don’t have anything to do with your major or your career.They get poor grades one semester and doubt their intellectual ability to do the work.They don’t feel “connected” to the college.Lack of support from friends. Maybe their friends are working rather than going to school, and they are irritated at having to do homework when their friends want to party.Family members aren’t supportive and place obstacles in their way.They run into obstacles such as registration or financial aid. It’s easier to just stop than to fight.What else could you add to this list?
What I will be grading:Thesis—You should focus your essay around a strong statement of thesis that illuminates something about how we can solve the problem of low retention ratesDevelopment of points—You shouldn’t just give a laundry list of problems and solutions. Instead, you should be able to explain the reasons for and/or the significance of those.Specific support—Don’t make vague generalizations. Support your points with specific references to your research and/or your own experience.Organization—Your points should be arranged in a logical order.Spell check and proofread. I will deduct points for grammatical errors, typos, and errors in punctuation and capitalization.
Research Sources (at least 2): You MUST use at least two research sources for this paper. Each source must be academic in nature. What does that mean? An academic source passes the CRAAP test: this is a CRAAP is an acronym for Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose
Direct Quotation (at least 1): You MUST include at least one direction quotation. A quotation is a direct copy of someone else’s words, used to support your point. Your quote can be anything from a few words to a sentence or two, but it MUST be enclosed in quotation marks.
Signal Phrase (at least 1): You should also use in-text citation to identify the source of the quote and its validity. At least once in your paper you should use a signal phrase, where you introduce the quotation by telling me who said it and why I should believe that person. Here is an example of a quotation with a signal phrase. According to Broward College professor Neil Plakcy, “Many students entering college do not have a good idea of their career plans.” Notice that the quotation marks are appropriately placed—next to the capital M and after the period at the end of the sentence.
Paraphrase (at least 1): When you take someone else’s ideas and put them into your own words, that’s called a paraphrase. (This is different from your own ideas in your own words, remember.) You must use at least one paraphrase from your source. You identify it as a paraphrase either with a signal phrase (see above) or with parenthetical citation.
Parenthetical Citation (at least 1): Whenever you use information from a source in your writing, you MUST be able to connect it to a citation in your Works Cited list. If your source has an author attached to it, you can use the author’s last name in parenthesis at the end of your paraphrase.
This paper should be approximately 750 words, which should be about three pages, typed and double spaced.
You should have an introduction which uses one of the following academic strategies:• Begin with a quotation• Begin with a statement recognizing an opinion or approach different from the one you plan to take in your essay (for example, “Though most people might believe X, I hope to prove Y”).• Begin with a paradox, a seeming self-contradiction. • Begin with a short anecdote or narrative• Begin with an interesting fact or statistic• Begin with a question or several questions that will be answered in the paper• Begin with relevant background material• Begin with an analogy• Begin with a definition of a term that is important to your essay
