Re-read the “research plan” you imagined for this past week’s assignment. Find three different kinds of resources that might help you to pursue this plan. These resources can differ by discipline or methodology (as in cultural history vs. literary criticism vs. art history), by source/medium (library book vs. document from an online database vs. scholarly journal article), or by the kind of evidence they provide (an example, an overview, a theory).
Please write up one paragraph for each of the three resources. Describe each resource and why you chose it. Then, tell me what you could do with this resource. Which part of the problem does it help you solve? Which one of your questions does it help you answer? If you were drafting an essay on this subject, how and why would you bring each resource up? Does it suggest further questions, or change the way you frame your original question(s)?
