Writing Assignment: A Spark
You spend all summer trying to get close to your crush. You go bowling even though you hate bowling.
You send emails and IM, and finally you are out on date, just the two of you. Unfortunately, the
conversation is forced, your date is answering text messages all through dinner, and you just want it to
be over. Luckily, it will be because you aren’t married.
At this point, you are not married to your research topic yet either. You are in the dating stages and if
things are not going well, you can look for a new topic or give this one another chance. The work you
are doing in this assignment is like dating your topic. You are seeing if you like it and if there is enough
substance to take this topic further.
Nothing is more frustrating than discovering at the eleventh hour that there is not much information
about your topic, that all the sources say the same thing, or that the topic isn’t as interesting as you
thought. To avoid these pitfalls, this assignment will give you a little preview of how the project will go
and give your instructor enough information to guide you toward successful discovery.
1. Complete the chart that presents your overall research question and the series of questions you
will explore in relation to the main question. Add as many additional squares as you like to the
middle levels. Feel free to complete more than one chart if you are considering more than one
topic or more than one direction in the same topic.

Mark
hyman wrote a book with Dr. Robert Cantu, who is a clinical professor of
neurosurgery, about holding off tackle football until kids are at least 14 years
old. They felt that kids necks are weaker
than adults, kids don’t realize or
understand the risk, there is not a lot known about the long term effects of
repeating head trauma.
