For Lab Project #4, you are going to take the work you did in Lab Project #2 and begin to write the introduction to your final research proposal. You will use the synthesis sentences you created for Lab Project #2, with the addition of at least 2 more sources, to write your introduction, specifically the literature review. In the proposal assignment, the introduction is the most significant/lengthly component.
Lab project #4 is your opportunity to get feedback on a draft of your introduction.
Final Research Proposal Introduction
Your introduction should accomplish two goals:
Discuss the important findings from previous studies that are relevant to your project so that your reader can gauge the current understanding of the topic
Present your study’s major objectives and detailed hypothesis
Designed to interest your reader in your topic and proposal, provide some context for your study, and provide a comprehensive argument for why you are planning to conduct the study and what you are expecting to happen based on previous research.
Problem statement (1 Paragraph):
Start with a problem statement to define the issue at hand. What is the problem? Why is the problem significant? If the problem is that there is an absence of research on this topic, why is contributing to our understanding of the topic important?
Literature review (2 -3 Paragraphs):
Provide context using past research to describe the topic in detail. Connect the sources and material you have read about your topic to help your audience understand your variables. Go beyond just summarizing other studies – clearly demonstrate how your study builds on existing scholarship/research. This is where you provide the background and significance of your study.
Your synthesis sentences from Lab Project #2 are a great place to start – find at least 2 more sources and write synthesis sentences on the study’s finding. Use these sentences as a foundation for your literature review.

Proposed argument/research question & hypothesis (1 Paragraph):
Present the study’s research question, your major objectives, and how you plan to explore the problem/question.
Formulate a research question that is narrowly focused so that you have a manageable research question based on a testable hypothesis.
List the independent/dependent variables and your operational definitions for the variables.
Explain how you plan to study each variable in broad terms (save the more detailed description of the procedure for your method section).
Hypothesis: what do you predict the results of your study will be or what do you expect to find once you have conducted your study?
This should not be intuitive/based on anecdotes; you should have come to this prediction based on the literature that you reviewed, that is why a hypothesis is an educated guess.
2-3 full pages, not including the title page and the reference page.
