The Relevance of Research
Communication Activity #3
Checking Your Sources

Objective: As a result of this activity the successful student will demonstrate the ability to find relevant research sources, analyze their content, and communicate results concerning a philosophical topic.

Step One: Select your Philosophical Framework Concepts page from the table below in order to study the concepts that you will research.

Step Two: Make note of the concepts that you will research. Consider the role that each plays (if at all) in your own thinking. research these concepts by exploring the sources listed on your Philosophical Framework Concepts page.

Step Three: Analyze the results you get from your research. Evaluate the results. For each of the concepts that you researched, write a separate message explaining the results that you found (i.e. what you learned about the concept and how it fits with your Philosophical Framework and your own ideas).

Please note that this is intended as an exercise in critical reading. Just copying or restating someone's ideas is not valuable here. Your task is to provide a thoughtful explanation and evaluation of the ideas that you encounter. Raise questions, examine arguments, test interpretations, compare claims, draw out assumptions, give examples, and use any other form of critical reading that you can. This is not a book report. It is a context for your original and genuine thought.
