English 110: 21st Century Science Fiction

Dr. Amber Strother

Spring 2018
Research Project: Part 3
100 points

For this portion of the assignment, you will be compiling a report based on the research you
completed in the annotated bibliography. While this information should be useful in thinking
about your own review of the text, this is not an argument paper which means you should not be
making claims. Instead, you should be sharing the claims from the sources you have gathered.
This assignment is designed as a way for you to demonstrate your awareness of the conversation
surrounding the text you have chosen. This should be 750-1000 words in length.

Due date: February 21, by 11:59 p.m.

 This should provide readers with some insight into your text but should also help you
organize your thoughts before you write your review as well as help you get a more well-
rounded understanding of the work.
 This should not be presenting the claims you intend to make in your own review, so just
focus on reporting about what you have read in the sources you have gathered.
 It should contain an introduction, a discussion of the academic conversation
surrounding the text, an overview of the reception of the film/book/tv episode based on
popular sources, and a conclusion.
 This should also contain a works cited page for the sources you cite within the report.
