1.3 The Academic Marathon: The Idea of Research: End-of-Chapter Exercises

End-of-Chapter Exercises

  1. After reading 1.1, what did you learn about the term “discipline” as it relates to the college experience? What is your desired discipline? Use a search engine (like Google or Bing), to learn more about that discipline. What type of data do scholars in that area depend on? What citation style? Is there somthing unquie abou the research in that discipline that you need to be aware of?
  2. As discussed in 1.2, research happens on a day-to-day basis even if it is not in the form of a published paper. Think about your first week here at CSC. Did you research? Did you look up classes, instructors, meal plans, etc.? When doing this did you choose classes that fit your work schedule? Did you choose based on friends or past students’ reviews? All of these subtle and oftentimes overlooked thought processes are a form of unpublished, unscholarly research.
