You Can Do It!

Use this guide to learn how to research and cite sources for your HUM1020 Research Assignments.


Unit 3: Research Assignment 1

This assignment is different from the first two.  In Unit Three, you will be doing research using the Broward College Online Library. Think about your experience studying abroad in this unit.  Was there something about the Renaissance that interested you?  Perhaps a person, place, or an idea stuck out to you.  In this assignment, you will research the Renaissance topic of your choice. 

Find three sources that discuss the topic you chose.  The sources must come from the BC Library.  Create an MLA bibliographic entry for each source.  Upload this document as a separate file.

Then, in a separate document, write a 500 word reflection that explains what you learned from each of the sources. Start by identifying the tour you're discussing and state the topic as it relates to the study abroad tour. Be sure to draw connections between your research and the learning unit materials.  Work to understand your topic and its relevance to the study abroad tour and the Renaissance, generally.  You must use quotations when applicable.  Also, you must provide intext citations for quoted and summarized materials.

The paper should be double spaced with a standard 12 point font.  Paragraphs should be left justified and the first line should be indented. No heading is required.

Unit 7: Research Assignment 2

Choose one of the images from the "Reading Images" section of the learning unit. You will be using the Berger essay and two sources that discuss the image, its interpretation, and its significance. The sources must come from the BC Library.  Create an MLA bibliographic entry for each source and submit that as a separate file.

Then, in a second document, write a 500 word reflection that uses Berger and your two sources to explains what you learned about the image and its meaning. Be sure to use quotations from all three sources to explain what the image means, it's significance, and what Berger would say about the information you've uncovered.  Be sure to use quotation marks when applicable.  Also, be sure to provide in-text citations for quoted or summarized materials.

The paper should be double spaced with a standard 12 point font.  Paragraphs should be left justified and the first line should be indented. No heading is required.
